I am a software developer in a Networking company.I was a forwarding person and now i gained interest to know what is happening in the upper layers which would help me architect the network devices better. For the knowledge sake ,to learn about about various routing protocols, what do you suggest ? Should I do CCNA/CCNP or just try the CCIE written or Are there any other certifications out there for routing protocols ?
My plan with writing exams is that i will have a goal and have set of topics to read rather than random reading.
Are there any mock test certifications that could do Instead ?
Let me know need your thoughts.
