juniper is fine as well.
only question is what is the agreed design?
what is the budget? is local support required? if so, is it available in the installed site?
there's a lot of things to consider and usually, designers preferred to go the cisco route.
i had a client who had a global fleet of netscreens for a long time.
support contract will expire later this year and they think it's too expensive.
hence, last week, they decided to migrate to fortinets.
btw, kalma lang tayo dito sa thread ha :)
Here's a comparison between IOS CLI and JUNOS (Juniper) CLI. Any programmer will agree that JUNOS CLI looks more like a source code.
both are the same.
cisco ios has the same hierarchical way of configuration as well.
route-map TPC permit 10
match ip address TPC_Pref
set local-preference 200
it's just that most people are familiar with cisco's interfaces since they are used more.
again, this boils down to what the requirements are and what is the budget etc
IMHO, certification ay mas valuable kesa sa degree. alam ko madami mag rereact dito
hmmmm, kung walang makakapal ang mukha na mandurugas ng exam, yes.
but since maraming nandadaya ng exams, nawawalan na ng value ang certs.
i'd rather say mas importante ang experience compared sa certs.
degree means nothing since it shouldn't even be a requirement in the first place.
like what i said above, pinoy lang ang may bulok na mentality na dapat degree holder ang isa bago tanggapin sa IT field.
