I think Juniper is better than Cisco in terms of firmware and IOS.

The main feature of Juniper is that you don't have to update your firmware (in Cisco IOS) every month like cisco....they release update every 6 months and it's very stable.

In Juniper, you can buy one appliance and based on your payments or configuration it can work as router, switch, Gateway, cisco, you buy a switch it's still switch.

Juniper faces many problems to compete Cisco in the market because most of engineers are familiare with Cisco IOS command and configuration and most of them have Juniper offer to these companies a free training course to replace CCNA with Juniper Certified....

They also build a software which can convert your cisco configuration to juniper (Actually this work only on certain devices)
