Brocade vs Cisco? Which has highest recognition and paying rates in DataCenter field?

Hello experts,

Ah the old proverbial certification question.    My favorite go to for this topic is done by Certification Magazine who produce a nice salary survey.  The reason why i like this one, they poll the community and the consensus comes from the people in the networking community of what they have and the salaries that go along with it.  So I dont think they've published a newer since 2009, but looking it over it still hold true IMHO. 

So you can find it at Certification - December 2009

But the area most pertinent to you inquiry is on page 18 where you will see a breakdown of all the tech certifications vs salary.

Now for the other part of your question of "highest recognition"... that part is extremely subjective.  Both Brocade and Cisco put out fantastic Certifications programs and no mater what you choose, I think you'll be happy either way.  Many here at Brocade have both as we are a networking player and in that universe its not just Brocade but other vendors as well and in this small world, knowing more then one language will only make communication that much better.
