I need to know what the target of Network+.
I think the CompTIA does not provide the network+ certification to let me take the CCNA certificate, so what the industry the Network+ is essential for, and I do not need to take the CCNA certificate after taking the network+, one is enough I think,
one more piece of information, I will enter the network industry for a while and then build my career to a cybersecurity career, so which one is more important to cybersecurity, Network+ or CCNA
CCNA is more detailed than Network+
so please help me to know that.
Solved Network+ target
CompTIA Network+ is a vendor neutral certification, while Cisco CCNA is a vendor-certification.
They are both standard network focused certifications but Cisco CCNA is focused on the candidate learning networking their way and with their equipment. This certification makes assumptions that you already have network in your background and are ready to dive into Cisco centric knowledge.
The CompTIA Network+ certification takes a more generic approach and teaching concepts for those who have level of network knowledge and terminology...but not much more.
If I were beginning and didn't have any background in networks, I would say you should focus more on the CompTIA Network+. If you have been working on networks and need to learn about Cisco technology, then aim for the Cisco CCNA.
You will see many people tell you the CCNA is an easy exam. I would caution that this depends on your experience and skill with Cisco equipment and mastery of certain levels of networking knowledge. According to the website, this is an entry level certification. Yet, I would say that's not from Zero to CCNA.
Any fundamentals you learn are essential to your cybersecurity career. You will not have a cybersecurity career without it--I guarantee that. If you don't know IP routing and and L2, switching for example, there is where your cybersecurity career will stop.
