Let me start off by saying that this is my first time learning about this site which I think is a great tool. Now I am an "old" CCNA and on course to take the newer versions of the CCNA/DA. Now my question is since Cisco has got a lot of new "paths" to take after the CCNA, which of these are in Demand? I know that it depends on what you want to go into but for me I am trying to "Specialize" in a field as I know it is tough to have full knowledge of both Voice and Security.
Some combos I hear in the real world, all of these suggestions are of what I hear and just need some clarification:
CCNP/CCSP - Is this necessary or just CCSP is enough? You learn the routing part in CCSP already?Right?
CCNP/CCSP/CCDP - Overkill?
CCNP/CCVP - Necessary?
Now there is a CCIP which I know is more for service providers so I am wondering if anyone will be doing the CCIP in conjunction with having it with their CCNP or CCSP? Is the CCIP even in demand and does it further your knowledge of routing or some other types of protocols?
Thanks for any input and suggestions.
