If you are working with ISP then try to get your self transferred to NOC. You will not be able to play with devices there but it will clear your many doubts.

I think it is like that in many many jobs.... you train and learn the good stuff in class, and then don't really get to use it.

No network uses all the features that you learn in class, so its impossible to get exposure to everything.

Just keep reading the books, studying, and taking new and different tests.

Jobs that do more of everything are consulting jobs where you move from customer to customer, always doing something a little different from before. In this job you learn alittle about everything. This type of job can have its drawbacks --- always doing something different is stressful.

Can you get a lab or get your employer to get a lab in which you can do ccie study labs? This is a great way to get hands on with all the features.

I agree with you about NOCs... they are an awesome place to work. The problem is that if you're in a large enough shop, the engineering and NOC work is separated. So in the NOC you get to lean excellent troubleshooting skills but in engineering you get to learn strategy for deployment. Sitting in the NOC for some period of time if possible is a plus... but not forever.

A Chenthil,

In my humble opinion if you are serious for good exposure, the BEST place is to work with any SI or in other terms Cisco Partners.

These companies do really deal with the cutting edge technolgy all the time and will FORCE you to keep an eye on everything and anything in the radar.

The Best companies in Delhi for Cisco platforms would be Datacraft-Asia, Network Solutions and for any beginner the best bet would be Darts IT Networks (

If you are not sure of your skills at this time, I will request you to start with Darts, they are excellent in terms of exposure and knowledge.

All the Best.

Please rate if helpful.

Kind Regards,

Wilson Samuel
