Q

Opportunities in IP telephony

I have taken Cisco classes at my college. I am ready to take my CCNA. I would like to specialize in IP Telephony. Can you give me your opinion as to when the IP telephony will really take off, and about how much those skills will be worth. I am currently 53 years old, so I can't make many mistakes. Thanks!
By most reckonings, IP telephony is already a pretty well-established and popular technical specialty. I don't think it would be a mistake to follow this path to a career specialization. In addition to the various Cisco specializations and main-line certs that focus on IP telephony, be sure to check out the numerous other credentials in the "Communications" category at gocertify.com ( http://www.gocertify.com/communications/). Starting with Cisco is a good beginning, but you should make yourself aware of other, more senior IP telephony programs and credentials worth considering as well.

Good luck with your future studies, and in your chosen career path. Thanks for writing.
