IPv6 Hands On Training - The Time is Now
Thanks to the publication of a study by the NRO (Number Resource Organization) that is the official representative of the five RIRs (Regional Internet Registries) that oversee the allocation of all Internet number resources, we learned the following:
The survey polled over 1,500 organizations from 140 countries.
Here are some other interesting facts:
It is time to begin the planning and preparation for IPv6 support.
Supporting IPv6 begins with understanding IPv6. CellStream now offers its Hands On IPv6 course to customers so that you can begin to build the knowledge vase within your technical staff. Hands on training is the best training as students not only understand, but they "do". In the class, we take an IPv4 network and build an IPv6 network - from scratch, and then we learn how the various migration options can be used to support both IPv4 and IPv6 in the near future.
We will also shortly offer our Advanced IPv6 course that covers IPv6 over MPLS, and other subjects. Look for more information soon, or follow us on Twitter @awalding.
CellStream Hands-On Lab Systems
In our opinion, the only way to master the technologies in a learning environment, or study the impacts of implementing a network design, is to implement the technology on a real network environment. We do not support simulators or virtual routers and switches, we use the real things. This ensures that students and clents experience exactly what they will encounter in their own networks.
We have two lab environments and offer these pictures for reference.
This systems are also available for those studying for certification to use and configure on hourly and daily lease rates.
The following is an example configuration of the CellStream Lab #1:
This is a diagram of one of our lab configuration options demonstrating a core network supporting customer networks. This lab layout is especially supportive of our Routing, MPLS, VPN and Traffic Engineering classes.
Instructional Design and Teaching
CellStream consultants have designed all types of training programs under the guidelines of Bloom's Taxonomy, including our own. If you are looking for experienced instructional designers to help you develop your own private internal training program, or a training program for your customers, and you would like to leverage our skills and methodologies, we would love to help. CellStream can create customized programs and deliver them to your training specialists (train-the-trainer) or deliver them to your target audience.
We can also deliver your programs using skilled, articulate and experienced presenters who offer the unique ability to field questions and provide industry focused answers to those questions.
Instructors for Hire
CellStream instructors receive the highest praise from our students. We continually use feedback from student evaluations to learn how our courses and our delivery can be improved. The result over time is that our instructors are industry leaders and have developed highly tuned delivery techniques. These techniques engage students and foster great learning environments.
If you are looking to deliver a mission critical training program, contact us for instructor availability.
Technical Skills Development
You can get a feel for the quality of our program capabilities by viewing our tutorials. If you need more information on any of our skill related services, click here and we will contact you immediately (all contact information is kept strictly private).
We have built our own lab systems for instructional design, hands-on lab course development, course content verification, and network troubleshooting simulation. These comprehensive systems allow for skills based training to occur anywhere on the globe, as we have designed the system to be accessible using the Internet.
Network / Applications Skill and Knowledge Capital Programs
Looking at a new technology for introduction into your network? MPLS? ATM? Frame Relay? IP Switching? How does the application of these technologies affect the network we are using today? CellStream can come into your organization, prepare a knowledge capital program custom tailored to your organization's network needs and provide a non-product influenced analysis.
Development Process Improvement Program
The barriers to completing projects on time and on budget are numerous and complex. Few people know exactly what the secret ingredients to accomplishing this monumental requirement is. Truth be known, making targets requires focus, commitment, confidence and reward. It is a special and difficult recipe. Having accomplished this more than one time in Mr. Walding's past, the methods and process understanding can be used to help your organization too.
