Pros and Cons

  • Routing.
  • Switching.
  • Firewall.
  • Virtual chassis new switch has overwritten existing config if not performed in a particular way.
  • Applying a configuration to a range of interfaces could be done in a better way.
  • Applying firewall rules to multiple security zones could be done a little more efficiently.

Pros and Cons

  • JunOS command line is easy to use.
  • Show and commit commands allow for more certainty when configuring switches.
  • J-Web web UI is not as easy to navigate as the JunOS command line.
  • Interface identifiers (GE-0/0/0, GE-0/1/0, GE-0/2/0) with ports/modules can be inconsistent from front to the back of switches.

Pros and Cons

  • Commit Confirmed - saves lots of headache and possibly travel if a remote goes awry
  • Stacking - switches can be stacked together easily with regular network cables, using any port
  • L3 routing on any switch model, even BGP with the right license
  • Speed - some models are quite slow to boot up and to respond when working on the console.
  • Fan loudness - some models, like EX2300, are extremely loud for no reason. The moment the intake temperature is a bit high, they rev up the fan to full speed, even though the temperature inside the switch is OK. This creates problems with using the switches in small offices with limited air conditioning.
  • Syntax - Many commands are quite convoluted and not intuitive. Logging in particular is a challenge.

Pros and Cons

  • Configuration is light years beyond everyone else. The structure of the config file and the commit/confirm/rollback features are critical.
  • Juniper Support is excellent and affordable.
  • The variety of models is enough to cater to particular needs, but there is not a dizzying array of options like other vendors.
  • JunOS operating system is the same across all platforms, greatly simplifying administration.
  • A few more options in hardware platforms would be nice. I would like to see smaller, rugged switches similar to the EX "C" line, but more affordable even if it means lower port count. I would also like to see smaller 10Gbit switches (8-12 ports).
  • I'd like to see a little better response to new networking standards (We have been waiting for proper RFC 6939 support for years).
