B

Hi Everyone,

Today we are going to cover a topic on Network Administration. In this topic I’ll tell you about Network Administration and How you can become a network administrator with zero fees and zero early experience.

A few of us already know that today most of the companies are trying to hire pro network administrators or network engineers. Fortunately network administration or network engineering doesn’t require a lot of early education like Bachelors, Masters or Ph.D. You just need to have some (Basic) knowledge of computer, Mean to say you have to know how to use an OS (Windows or Mac). If you really know that all done now you are ready to become network administrator.

Without wasting more time lets come to the main point. Most of People don’t know who are Network Administrator / Network Engineers, What are there work and why big companies hire them and pay huge amount to them.

What is Network Administration / Engineering?

Network is a term of Connection of 2 or more people / machines. Why i said connection between 2 or more people? Because a connection needs minimum 2 people / machines if you want to talk you can’t connect by yourself you need someone to talk so this conversation is a connection between you and your fellow. If we put ourselves in example when we start talking someone gave us a path & tell us how to start they were our parents or teachers but in case of machine connections and connectivity they don’t need a teacher because the don’t have brain like us and they don’t have power of self decision like we have.

The Person who has necessary skills to plan, repair and support the computer network is called a network administrator or network engineer.

And study of Computers Networks, their troubleshooting and maintenance is called Network Administration / Network Engineering.

The Certifications that are necessary to become a network Administrator

There are 1000’s of Network Administration Courses and certifications but implement of these courses are just like to polish your skills or upgrade you skills and work on something new and something different. In the whole world there are just 3 best companies* making Network equipment.

  1. Cisco
  2. Huawei
  3. Juniper

And the best part of Network Administration is that these companies have their own certifications and courses for their network equipment. Most of companies uses Cisco High Brand Routers, Switches, Wireless Controllers & Firewalls. So, the most common certification of this time is Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA). 

Most commonly people uses to study Cisco Certifications but the other two companies also have their own certifications.

Like Cisco has CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate), CCNP (Cisco Certified Network Professionals), CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet-works Engineer), CCAr (Cisco Certified Architecture) CCDP (Cisco Certified Designer Professional)

Huawei has HCNA (Hwawei Certified Network Associate), HCNP (Huawei Certified Network Professionals) & HCIE (Huawei Certified Internet-works Engineer)

and FInally the Juniper  has JNCIA (Juniper Networks Certified Associate), JNCIS (Juniper Networks Certified Starter), JNCIP (Juniper Networks Certified Professional) & JNCIE (Juniper Networks Certified Engineer)

What is Best for Me and Why?

In the Present world 80% of worldwide companies are using Cisco and Huawei Products. So, My personal suggestion is to build you career with these two companies certifications. Huawei OS is 99% same as Cisco’s.
