Cisco/Network Engineers

Ok guys I do this on some forums I am on and it has helped. I know we have a ton of Network Engineers on this site. And if you are a Network guy WAN or LAN than you use Cisco products hands down. How could you not they control like 98% of the market and for good reason.

The purpose of this thread is random chat about being a network engineer and any cisco questions you have. Just post them I will try and answer them. Anyone out there have certs. While I only have my CCNA I have been studying for my CCNP, my boss is a CCIE so I have learned from the best.

Lets get this started boys and girls.

If I fill half my tank with Shell V-Power gas and the other half with Chevron with Techron gas will I have V-TEC gas?

Re: Cisco/Network Engineers

i don't have any certs, most of what i know is self-taught so far

working online / phone tech support for an isp right now that involves networks. although i'm not a senior tech yet, i am learning and might go grab some certs in the near future to advance my job a bit. most of my friends have theirs and it bug me when they talk about shit i don't know lol

Re: Cisco/Network Engineers

Get your CCNA that is the best one right out of the box hands down. It is the most respected cert. Then get your CCNP, once you have those 2 I Know in the states, it is very easy to find work making 70k plus. With my ccna and about 6 years exp. I made a little over 70k. This field is greating for making money and can be fun.

If you start studying for your CCNA let me know and I will help you.

Now get me in the wM.

Re: Cisco/Network Engineers

I never got certified on Cisco, I got on a VMWare tangent and focus on that mostly. I do have to do quite a bit with router configuration from time to time though, usually when Bellsouth (AT&T) decides they want to change something and I have to reconfigure all my branch routers in like a weeks time.

Re: Cisco/Network Engineers

experience speaks volume!

however, CCNA is something you want to get if you can. I didn't bother because I feared failing the exam.

When I was doing my course, i would do awesome on the practical labs and such (CCNA). However when it came time to do the tests, I always bombed. That shit is designed to make you fail.

Maybe one of these days I will bone up and take the ccna exam.

Re: Cisco/Network Engineers

Ummm, not really true. Sure Cisco has a big market and MOST places use Cisco switches, routers, etc, but not all of them do or not all of them use them exclusively.

Sure I will grant you that on the whole they make superior products to the other companies in the business, but they certainly don't have 98% of the market share (my guess is something more like 80% of the large scale (IE not home use) market).

I beg to differ my friend.Whom shares the market with them juniper,nortel,motorola,3comm? WE could also add smaller companies that are no longer in the biz like Riverstone etc etc.Please do research, I have worked for many large some of the largest comps in the biz. Verizon Business, CACI ,MCI, Navy Federal Credit Union, AT&T/Bell South. And a couple smaller ones like Perimeter internetworking. And I would say that maybe 2 times I have had to do something with Juniper and Nortel. The gov. using nothing but Cisco. All service providers use Cisco products to make sure no compatibilty problems come to arrise. I read the 98% in several mags, one was Packet Magizine and another was I think Gov. Telecom.

Nor do I, and as much as I hate to say it I don't think a CCIE would be driving a Mazda 3 or even a speed 3. They can pull in well over 6 figures around here. I have seen some as close as 190k, just for the certs. Cisco gives discounts to companies based on how many CCNA,NP's and CCIE's they have.

Reason being they figure that if they have the people onsite to support it saves cisco money and time. More certified people less TAC cases and less man hours.
