I currently use gnome-terminal to ssh to Cisco and Juniper devices.

If you do not have too many tabs open, you can manually go to "Terminal -> Set Title" and set the required title.
Otherwise, you can modify the Prompt String (PS1) which usually set as the title.

See http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/howto-linux-unix-bash-shell-setup-prompt.html on what you can set the PS1 to.
