Overall Satisfaction with Juniper Enterprise Routers

They are our edge/WAN routers.
  • Version tracking/rollback
  • Logical configuration layout
  • Verbose status/logs for troubleshooting purposes
  • Flexible configuration styles (carrier vs enterprise)
  • I would like to able to find more examples of configs. Given the multiple ways to configure the same setting, having a little more documentation would be helpful.
  • I wish the FPCs and interfaces were cheaper.
  • The stability and robustness of this solution provide a rock-solid foundation for all of our internet traffic.
  • The easy to use rollback and commit features simplifies remote administration and configuration, alleviating the need to travel to remote installation sites.
  • Cisco 4000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 4000) and Cisco Routers
The simplicity, elegance, and robustness of Juniper's solution make it much easier to troubleshoot and configure, when compared to Cisco Routers, especially considering Cisco's implementation of BGP (why are IPv4 and IPv6 linked in Cisco configuration?).

Furthermore, the implementation of commit and rollback cannot be understated when compared to the Cisco solutions. This feature is a huge time saver when attempting to troubleshoot and remote configuration instances.
Juniper support is friendly, easy to understand, widely knowledgeable, and easy to get ahold of. I did not give them a higher rating as some of my more complex issues, were solved by myself while under consultation from Juniper TAC.

Are you happy with Juniper Enterprise Routers's feature set?


Did Juniper Enterprise Routers live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Juniper Enterprise Routers go as expected?


Would you buy Juniper Enterprise Routers again?


As an edge/WAN router that contains internet BGP routes, it handles this work very well. And the devices are robust, able to manage a significant load. However, the interface cost can be somewhat of a hindrance when wanting to use it to interconnect many metro clients.
