Any comments on 5.4.1 code?
« on: October 18, 2006, 08:34:21 pm »
I recently purchased 2 WX-20's and was wondering if anyone is running 5.4.1 or not. It looks as though there are quite a lot of new features and I'm thinking it might be better to deploy 5.2.5 for now. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

We just deployed 5.4.1 - no issues experienced yet, but it is probably still too early to tell.

The main enhancements (from our perspective) are:

- pre-defined VoIP application definitions
- WCCP Enhancements
- Simplified topology settings
- NSC warming (useful in some instances)
- and the new Juniper skin / naming changes
JNCIE-ER #63, JNCIE-M #705, JNCIE-SEC, JNCIS-FWV, JNCIS-SSL

Thanks for the info. I'm contemplating setting them up inline attached to the firewall trust interface. I'm testing with 5.4.1 and thinking of deploying 5.2.5 if any oddities arise or others say the new stuff is not quite ready for prime time. My VOIP setup uses very little bandwidth so I'm probably going to leave that out of the mix for now and focus on reducing significant traffic like SAN data replication going over a VPN tunnel to a hosting facility.
