Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switches are suitable in multiple areas. They are extremely well suited in access and distribution layer switches and in some environments would be suitable for a core network (depending on the size of the company). There are a variety of high speed interface modules available and various sized switches to suit the application.

Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switches pushes virtual chassis quite a bit, which is suitable for many environments that require less switch management and more access ports. However, there are many incompatibilities amongst the switch lines from Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switches as far as which models can be put into a virtual chassis. This also is proprietary for Juniper EX Series Ethernet Switches, meaning you cannot stack between other switch vendors. Applying a template across a fleet of new switches to deploy is rather straightforward. However, moving from non-ELS to ELS switches has been a big learning curve and has caused some frustration. It is challenging to take a backup config from a non-ELS switch and apply it to a replacement ELS switch.

Juniper switches are the best I have used thus far. I have used HPE, Cisco, and Dell N series before Juniper. The rollback feature for these is awesome. It really enhances your ability to make changes and have it auto rollback in case of an error. This command feature is limited to Juniper and is probably the best feature and selling-point for them.

They work great as core switches, data center switches, top of rack switches. They can even serve as routers, their routing capability is great, except for where you need lots of routing processing power. I would not use many of them for branch office switches though, due to noise and slowness of bootup.

Pretty much all uses that require ethernet switching should consider Juniper. The only exception I can think of is if there is an extremely limited budget. Even then, certified pre-owned units are now available at significant discounts.
