I have got enough experience as a Network Engineer...but my concern is that if someone starts his career as a Network Engineer...and wants to do CCDE ...will it be worthy say after 10 years from now as SDN and so many things are coming which might automate every process ..so maybe u just give your query and u will get a Network Design so all your efforts to be a CCDE can be worhtless ????? Pls explain in detail CCDE future worth
