Cisco Networking is not equal to Microsoft Networking... totally different beasts. Microsoft Network Admins rarely work with Cisco hardware (at least the ones I know) and strict Cisco guys rarely go into the server side. It's best to know a bit of both to be well rounded if you're in a small shop. I work for an ISP so strong knowledge of application and presentation layer stuff isn't really required. Stick with what you're interested in and are passionate with. You tend to grow faster that way.
