Course Description:

The Internet has been converting to IPv6 for well over a decade.  Yet for many, clear understanding of the differences between IPv4 and IPv6 are not clear.  This swift, one day, 8 hr. class uses a “follow me” learning approach to build skills, the student will get a clear understanding of IPv6, how its addressing and operations work, and how it differs from IPv4.

The course is a combination of knowledge training, systems analysis, with hands-on exercises using Cisco routers and Cisco IOS, revealing the details of Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) in a swift, comprehensive, and understandable way.

  • “What is the next generation of IP (IPv6) and why it matters?”
  • “What must I know about IPv6 that will affect my network?”
  • “How does IPv6 addressing work and why would I use/not use it?”

Course Objectives:

To develop a “hands-on” skill set targeted at Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) networking in the following key areas:

  • What is the IPv6 Protocol?
  • How does it improve IPv4?
  • What does IPv6 addressing look like and how is it used?
  • IPv6 Usage in Routing
  • Multicast and Anycast IPv6 Features


The target audience for this course is anyone in Engineering, Test, Customer Support, Technical Marketing, or even Sales and Marketing that requires a solid and complete understanding of the fundamental operations of IPv6 Addressing and Routing and desires hands-on skills that can be applied to their job function.

Ideal candidates are:

  • Operations individuals that will provide IPv6 configuration and support services
  • Network Design Engineers that need to understand IPv6 Addressing and Routing
  • Network Management individuals that are providing element and network management tools
  • Technical sales individuals that must be able to correlate features with functionality
  • Technical marketing individuals that want more than just a basic understanding of IPv6
