CCNA wannabe's tutorials, examples and questions

  • hi mga sir/mam.need ko lang po ng onting time nyo :D
    I hope may makaka sagot or bigay ng opinion sa queries ko :D
    Im not a graduate of I.T or any related course sa computer.

    BUT PASSION KO PO IS COMPUTER. Im a nursing graduate way back 2010.
    With 3 years on experience sa hospital. kaso ayun nga, not happy anymore with my work
    .ang hirap eh, lalo na pag hindi mo talaga passion or hilig ung ginagawa mo.
    Kaya right now, I'm planning to take up Cisco 1-4 (Network and System)

    My friend told me na most of the company prefer a graduate of I.T course or any related course pag nag apply ka sa ganyang position.
    is it true?kasi kung totoo yan baka masayang lang yung pag training ko :(

    kaya as of today I'm torn taking up, between application development or network and system.
    but technically i prefer hardware than software etc.

    Here's the funny part, during my college days I'm building my own RIG,and maintain it.
    It came to a point na nag Water Cooling System pa ko.I have no experience pa kasi sa pag apply sa mga I.T company eh, kaya di ko alam.

    Ung friend ko lang nag sabi sakin.Thank you sa mga mag rereply. Thanks in advance sobra :D
  • Pareho tayo sir. Nursing Graduate din ako. Almost 2yrs din akong nagwork sa hospital. Ngayon I'm pursuing my passion. Hindi pa ako nakakapagtake ng CCNA pero plan ko this year.

    Nagstart ako as TSR sa BPO almost 3 yrs din ako sa position na ganyan. Ngayon Service Desk na sa isang banko. Although call center setting pa din. At least medyo may exposure na ako sa IT infra ng isang malaking companya. Tyaga tyaga lang. Sana by next year makapasok na as Network Admin namin..
  • basta keep on studying and never give up. yes, may mga stupid hr and hiring managers na titignan kung ano ang course mo at minsan pati sa school you graduated from, but just push on. kasama ang mga tao na ito sa dahilan kung bakit hindi umuunlad ang bansa natin. stuck pa rin sa bulok at lumang mentality na dapat x degree meron ka and dapat x school ka nanggaling. this doesn't work in IT, more specifically, in networks engineering.

    my direct VP in my previous firm didn't even have a degree but had tons of experience.

    like any other job, and pinakamahirap lang is yung first role na papasukan mo.
    once in, try to go from there. maraming company ang open sa internal transfer so pwedeng Helpdesk/Service Desk etc ang isa ngayon pero pag nagkaroon ng opening sa networks team e try to apply for it agad. talk to your managers, they will be able to help a lot. malay mo, gawan pa ng opening ang team dahil sayo =) similar thing happened to a colleague before

    or try to work for vendors and carriers. the pay may be crap but at least you get a lot of knowledge in return. some of them may even sponsor your trainings and exams. then move on to the firms which pay more.

    my 2c...

  • Tipidpc should start adding "like" button. Good words smoothz.
  • kaya as of today I'm torn taking up, between application development or network and system.

    imho, mas stable ang career sa network engg. pare pareho lang naman kasi ang tech kahit iba iba ang vendors.
    the way you route a packet in an investment bank is the same way you route a packet in a logistics firm.

    pwedeng mahusay ang isa sa isang programming language ngayon kaso ang tanong - up to when ang demand sa skillset.
    pwedeng the next few months e merong mas efficient and mas patok na software na gagamitin.
    kaya din naman aralin pag may bago pero hindi kaya mas maganda na gamitin ang same amount of time to learn more about a tech that will enable one to become more marketable in the future? ie take ccnp after passing ccna

    unlike sa networking, majority of firms use routers and switches specifically cisco.
    if they can't afford a cisco box, then for sure they can't afford you and you're better off with another firm.

    masyadong malaki ang variance sa programming and apps dev when it comes to demand.

    networking field will always have a vacancy. then after mo mag aral ng routing and switching, try to venture out into other fields as well like voice and security.

    at the end of the day, it's still up to you since that's your career.
    nagbabahagi lang ako ng kuro-kuro based from my own experience.
  • Mas madali ba ang network kesa maging dev?

    I wonder bakit mga non-IT hilig sumiksik sa sa networking. Kaya nawawalan ng value ang Cisco cert eh the worse buong network field.
  • Software-defined Networking ang future ng networking. Kailangan marunong na ng programming mga network engineer. Python programming language suggest nilang aralin.

    Agree. Because networking is too damn easy specially vendor specific na trend/technology based na networking. CCNA kashit Highschool pwede pumasa sa cert na yan.
  • hindi pa ba scripting ang CLI commands sa isang network device?
    whether it is cisco or not, are we not virtually "programming" a specific device how it should behave?

    ccna is NOT easy. yes with dumps, it will be. it doesnt matter whether one is a high school grad or not, the impt thing is one should study and try to learn the core tech. isnt programming the same?
    bottom line, lahat pwede aralin, networking tech man or coding.

    this is because mas stable ang career ng isang network engr.
    given the right skillset, one will be able to find a job regardless of the industry.

    unlike programming for example. if one spent a lot of time in an investment bank environment and became really good in Fidessa or FIX technology, he/she will only be able to move to other firms that use the same platform. pano na pag may ibang bank na gumagamit ng ibang tech tapos maganda ang pay? this person will not be considered for the role since his skillset doesn't fit.

    compare this to a networking guy who legitimately spent time and effort to learn and pass exams ie ccnp. regardless of the firm, one can be considered for a role since every big firm uses the same hardware vendor. again, if they cant afford cisco, they cant afford you.
  • Whats with cisco bakit un ang madalas gamitin? How about juniper?

    Hindi nagtatapos sa CCNA ang networking. Too damn easy? CCIE level na ba ang knowledge mo sir para sabihin mo na too easy ang networking?
  • Whats with cisco bakit un ang madalas gamitin? How about juniper?

    Cisco po kasi leading brand in terms of IT networking, popular po sila dahil sa operating system nila ang "IOS" hindi po yung sa apple. hehe

    world wide po kasi mas madami ang nagamit nila, second po ang juniper networks IMO.

    @TPClSELLERlBUYER08
    IMHO, certification ay mas valuable kesa sa degree. alam ko madami mag rereact dito.
    kung kaya mo aralin yan at ipasa ang CCNA, mas mabuti, hanap ka ng work na in line sa network para yung growth mo steady.
    kaya kahit nursing graduate ka may chance ka pa din makakuha ng work dito sa pinas, yun nga lang start sa mababa ulit

    Agree. Because networking is too damn easy specially vendor specific na trend/technology based na networking. CCNA kashit Highschool pwede pumasa sa cert na yan.

    IMHO CCNA is hard, masasabi ko nga mas mahirap pa yan kesa sa CCNP.
    kasi sa CCNA nandun halos lahat ng mga functions na dapat mo matutunan sa networking at introduction, but it's not that deep knowledge.
    siguro kung may exam dumps ka madali, pero kung iintindihin mo lahat un, for the sake of troubleshooting, yun ang mahirap.

    Here's a comparison between IOS CLI and JUNOS (Juniper) CLI. Any programmer will agree that JUNOS CLI looks more like a source code.

    If you are a programmer, this should be easy to read (full configuration of one of my Juniper security device/router)

    I started my career as a "Cisco" guy pero once natuto ako sa Juniper CLI, ayaw ko na balikan Cisco. I can't stress enough how much better the Junos CLI is compared to Cisco.
  • juniper is fine as well.
    only question is what is the agreed design?
    what is the budget? is local support required? if so, is it available in the installed site?
    there's a lot of things to consider and usually, designers preferred to go the cisco route.

    sample:
    i had a client who had a global fleet of netscreens for a long time.
    support contract will expire later this year and they think it's too expensive.
    hence, last week, they decided to migrate to fortinets.

    btw, kalma lang tayo dito sa thread ha :)

    both are the same.
    cisco ios has the same hierarchical way of configuration as well.

    ie
    route-map TPC permit 10
    match ip address TPC_Pref
    set local-preference 200

    it's just that most people are familiar with cisco's interfaces since they are used more.
    again, this boils down to what the requirements are and what is the budget etc

    hmmmm, kung walang makakapal ang mukha na mandurugas ng exam, yes.
    but since maraming nandadaya ng exams, nawawalan na ng value ang certs.
    i'd rather say mas importante ang experience compared sa certs.
    degree means nothing since it shouldn't even be a requirement in the first place.

    like what i said above, pinoy lang ang may bulok na mentality na dapat degree holder ang isa bago tanggapin sa IT field.
