Hello,

I want to improve myself as as network engineer by getting knowledge of growing technologies. Currently im working at a ISP, and i have some certs like CCDP, CCNP, CCNA security and some more. Still feeling not ready for CCIE:) In that gap im thinking, that would be nice to have some other certs. And im thinking smoething about Network Virtualization (SDN) type of stuff. I know Vmare have some certifications, but still dont understand the difference betnween vsphere and NSX.. Maybe you could recommend any certification even it could be associate or middle level? Thank you..

    If you're in the ISP world Juniper certs can be a good choice. Really not much in the SDN space cert wise that I know of.

    F5 sounds impressive. Even after looking at the home page, I can't figure out what it's for.

    I've used it to refresh the hell out of some webpages.

    The answer is everything. No seriously....I found that so many places have f5 (loadbalancers, or WAFs, or policy access..etc) in front of almost everything they have. Great skill to have right now, specially when combined with Firewalls/Proxies/Routers/Switches knowledge. you will be the king of Network Engineers icon_cool.gif

    On the network side Cisco certs are still king.
