Hello everyone,

I have recently completed my CCNA certification. But I am a little confused on what course to follow next.

My personal inclination is be in a technical stream -networks or infosec, wherein I am not required to work on operations and daily maintenance/support. Prefer designing or development work. Also looking further on a long term basis(say 10 years from now) I would like to break free from job and start some kind of consultancy service on my own.

I would be very much grateful if you could pls provide me your valuable suggestion. Thanks in advance!

Best Rgds,


I have this problem too.

Others Organization:

If you wanted to be in a Routing & Switching Domain for a Organization means it better to go for a CCNP, CCIE (R & S) and further on...
