    Hi and welcome!

    Cisco would be useful - but only if that is the line you want to go in. :biggrin N+ is an excelent foundation for networking in general without being specific to one vendor.

    So it all rather depends on what you see yourself doing in the future!

    Harry.

    G'day spooky :D

    It all depends on what you are likely to be able to get your hands on. Bear in mind that Cisco gear is very expensive, and that it is only likely to be utilised in large organisations.

    Small businesses are more likely to use a cheaper vendors products. So, if you study for Cisco certs and then can't get the exposure to their products either because they are not being utilised or you are prohibited from getting any hands on by your more experienced peers in the company you work for. You will find that the cert will expire and you won't have been able to put it to good use.

    The same goes for any IT qualification, you have to realistically be able to put into practice what you learn, in order to become truly proficient.
