More of the same:R&S or Voice?
Hello all, i am a CCNP R&S and half-way to CCNP Voice engineer with minimal experience. I was offered a job from a Cisco Partner, as a voip engineer (only cisco products).
I am in a dilemma whether i should get involved in voip or stick to R&S
The interviewer (CCIE R&S himself) told me that there are plenty of cisco r&s engineers and being a good voip engineer has great future. I told him about my goal of becoming a CCIE R&S and his answer was simple: Do you wanna become one? Becone in voice!
I have also read that in the future, there will be PBXs over the cloud. Does this mean that CUCM on premises will be over?
Regarding becoming CCIE, it is obvious that R&S is the "easiest" track and the voice probably the hardest. So isn't it a pity to skip it? Will i gain experience in this job that will help me with the R&S lab? The underlying infrastructure is done by another team...
Any thoughts are welcome.
