Path to VOIP Administrator via Network Administrator?

Hey all,

I'm curious to know if one must (or should) first become a Network Administrator before becoming a VOIP administrator?

I'm referring to after an individual has obtained necessary certs (CCNA R&S/Voice), and is seeking employment, with the end goal of becoming a VOIP engineer.

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

    In my opinion you should use a foundation such as the CCNA R&S before just focusing on VoIP. Everything kind of stems off R&S.

    With VoIP learn about SIP as well, as the CCNA Voice is only the tip of the iceberg and very Cisco focused.

    I asked the same question in the CCNA voice section, the advice was unless you'll be purely working with Cisco voice products there is little point in taking it.
