Juniper Secure Meeting

Hi, I am thinking to purchase the SA2500 with Secure Meeting function to use for Webex type of conference calls - we can handle telconf port via our phone system just need a way to do presentation.

Is it a good choice? Our meetings typically have less than 10 parties.

Re: Juniper Secure Meeting

Hmm - nice question. Well I certainly would not buy it just for Secure Meeting. There are some many other services out there that fill the niche for less money.

However, having said that, it is a terrific product. I use it daily, sometimes multiple times a day. I think it works well and would recommend it. It is not as full featured as some other products on the market like Webex, but it is very solid. Did a Webex today with attendees from multiple east asian countries and as always everyone was satisfied with the response times they saw.

Re: Juniper Secure Meeting

What are the other products that can do this at the similar cost?

Webex, Gotomeeting, and Livemeeting are all extremely expensive like $10+ a person/month. If I have 50 people using it, that's $6,000 a year, which is basically the cost of a SA2500.

Re: Juniper Secure Meeting

I am not sure that your numbers are correct. To run 50 users on Secure Meeting I believe that you will need the base unit, the 50 user license and a 50 user Secure Meeting license.

My sales guys do the pricing but from memory I thought that it would be quite a bit more.

Also remember that the license cost for secure meeting is a one time cost. One of the really nice features of secure meeting is the remote support option. Our support folks use it quite a bit to save an office visit.

Re: Juniper Secure Meeting

For 50 users, we only need 10 concurrent license. Including equipment and other cost, it's about $7-8K for SA2500 one time cost.

If we use Webex, that's 50x$10/month, $6,000/year.

I just wonder if the group conference/desktop sharing works well or not.

Re: Juniper Secure Meeting

I work for Juniper as you can tell, but I can say that I use Secure Meeting multiple times per day (IVE OS 6.5 and 7.0) and have no issues. I use it on Mac, Linux, and also Windows systems without problems.

Re: Juniper Secure Meeting

I don't doubt a single bit about its one-on-one tech support capability. I intend to use it for group meetings often with 4-6 parties. That's where I am not clear on its performance.

Re: Juniper Secure Meeting

It is totally fine for group meetings. We use it for sales presentations on a regular basis and host multiple (5 - 10+) users with no issues.

Bennyz,

 

I also will often have meetings with 5-10 attendees.
