We use Juniper gear as edge routers on the customer premise networks. It is not used by whole organization and is used only by access network teams. It helps to peer with customers (BGP or MPLS) depending on the nature of circuit customer has purchased and share routing tables on edge.
  • BGP auto-peering
  • Juniper ATP cloud for threat profiling
  • Segment Routing algorithms allows customization
  • GUI has come a long way, but can be improved
  • SDN features
  • Training, documentations and online discussion forums can be improved.
Juniper Operating systems are well suited for distribution and edge networks. When we evaluated them for a proposal to core networks we decided to go with other vendors, as the processing capacity of core routers was lower. Typical environments Junos OS has fit in our organization are enterprise, customer edge, distribution networks.
  • Firewall
  • Edge routing and switching
  • GUI support and SDN
  • Junos OS is cost effective
  • Uptime is impressive and has proven availability
  • Lack of training among employees has made it harder for few teams to troubleshoot
We have stuck to iOS for datacenter networks for many years due to familiarity and ease of use. Junos OS is well suited for business customers, due to cost-effectiveness and not frequent changes to end routers. Junos OS is very comparable to its competitors, but it bit behind on core layer solutions.
