I find it quite difficult to buy from Cisco and Juniper :
- no price-tags can be found on their websites, let alone buy-online capabilities
- a "buy cisco" google-search will mostly return websites selling used equipment. I've not found a single dealer in my geographic area (ie France).
- If I understand correctly, the typical way to buy new equipment is to ask to a Cisco (or Juniper) "partners", but those partners seems to be security professionals, who want to audit my system (not for free, of course), advise me on what to buy, and then sell me what they advised me to buy. .
I'm used to buy other IT equipment on the internet (such as servers), and any query will return hundred of dealers, both online and physical. Am I missing something? What's the standard way to buy from Cisco and Juniper ?
I'm just looking for a trust-able online dealer which would let me compare prices and buy my equipment online !
