Sales --> networking?

I am a sales guy working for a telephone services and solutions company in India. In order to do my job better, I need to have a good understanding of networking. Would pursuing a CCNA be the right choice for me?
Given the relatively small amount of detail you've provided about your on-the-job requirements, I see no reason why CCNA, CCNP, possibly CCDP, and possibly even a CCIE might not be good certifications for you. But unless your company's (or its customers') infrastructure(s) is based on Cisco components, studying Cisco won't help much. If your technical back- ground is strong, jump right onto the CCNA; otherwise, I recommend starting with A+, Network+, and i-Net+ to make sure you have the right computer and networking background under your belt before tackling the CCNA.
