I have completed my CCIP and have some hands on on MPLS L3/L2 VPNs ATM etc. I have decided to pursue CCIE and I would love to do it in SP. That is my goal. But many of my friends ae of the opinion that it is better to do CCIE R&S as it is the core and maybe later do SP as a second certification. Wanted to get some views of people here.
Thanks in advances for the help.
