Dear students, don’t ask what you can do after learning CCNP, ask yourself what you know and what you can do first. The CCNP certificate is just a key, which is the door that allows you to enter the network world. The world here is very exciting, and the world here is also very helpless. Passing CCNP does not mean that it can be done once and for all, but it can lay a good network foundation for you, which can make you learn by analogy in your future work, but if you really want to become a good network engineer, there is only one way: keep learning!
I think these words below of mine will help some students who are learning CCNP!
First of all don’t ask what can you do? First ask yourself what do you know? When I learned CCNP, I didn’t think that the CCNP certificate was much better than CCNA, but was seduced by Cisco’s training system. I learned CCNP in order to solve a lot of my confusion. These people used to bash those who have backed up the NP test bank on the forum as paper, and now they found out even if you have passed the CCNP exam by your own efforts, but have no actual work experience, it is still a paper.
You knew about pix when you were learning Cisco, but now you realize that pix is simply garbage. Firewalls from checkpoint, netscreen, nokia to low-end sonicwall and fortigate have no basic knowledge. You have no choice but to learn.In school every day, you do experiments with Cisco equipment, and you feel very skilled. Now the customer’s environment is very complicated, so 3com, quidway, big hammer, Lenovo, Maipu, all came up, there is no way to solve it, only to learn.
Storage is hot, and companies are jumping on it. So the terms DAS, NAS, and SAN flood our ears every day. You said that storage is not about network engineers, but SAN means storage area network. This is about the network, and the optical switch is about the network. There is no way, you still have to learn; Customers want broadband access, don’t think that just like an individual user, just pick up a modem is OK. When you stand in the wiring closet of the user CO and look at hundreds or thousands of telephone lines, can you tell the boss that CCNP does not teach you how to debug the XDSL central office equipment? Check the manual, it’s all in English, don’t be afraid, isn’t it all in English when you learn NP and NA? For the first time, you found yourself reading English so fast. At that time, you passed the test in a hurry, and when you came back, you had lingering fears. you had no choice but to study.
The company conducts training, the content is F5, it is a well-known traffic management software, and the similar products are packeteer. you sigh your ignorance and study hard; how much do you know about operating systems, let alone UNIX, it is too general, I am asking about AIX, Solaris, HP -UX, SCO, and of course include windows2000 and linux. It doesn’t matter you don’t know, the data is here, you can learn it; how many kinds of databases? So there came to a bunch of mysql, oracle, db2, sybase, infomix information, but you still don’t understand it, so you go to learn.
Physical isolation, vulnerability scanning, risk assessment, you hear new terms every day, you know something you don’t know every day, you are tired of studying, studying, and studying again… you searched for information in the leaves of famous IT manufacturers, and at the same time squatted in several famous thematic forums, looking for ways to solve problems. It was very busy, but also very fulfilling.
So, all the juniors and seniors, don’t ask what you can do after learning CCNP, ask yourself what you can do first. The CCNP certificate is also a key that allows you to enter the gate of the online world. The world here is very exciting, and the world here is also very helpless. Learning NP does not mean that it can be done once and for all, but it can lay a foundation for you, which can make you learn by analogy in your future work, but there is only one way to truly become a network engineer: keep learning! For these, ask yourself, are you ready?
