What Students say about this course:

  • "Like how the instructor provided context and "why" behind the way things were designed."
  • "Labs are easy to transcribe/copy/paste without actually understanding what you're doing."
  • "Loved going over the packet captures"

 

Course Description:

Knowing the fundamentals of the Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) is vital to anyone who is in the networking field today, whether it be Service Provider level or Enterprise level, especially considering the current address consumption in IPv4. This insightful and revealing course has been designed to focus on the systems approach, the engineering thinking behind the IPv6 design and implementation.

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?"
  • "How do I integrate IPv6 with IPv4?"

Course Objectives:

To develop a "hands-on" skill set targeted at Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) routing and 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 (RIPng, OSPF, BGP)
  • Multicast and Anycast IPv6 Features

These objectives are met by covering the necessary technical bases in a straight forward manner, by keep the content in context of the objectives - connecting the dots. Utilizing a short, subject specific architecture with exercises to drive home key points and Hands-On experience that reveal these points builds skills and knowledge based on Bloom's Taxonomy. The presentation is always industry current and up-to-date using a technology specialists.

Audience:

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
  • Certification Track individuals that need to expand their knowledge and studies
  • Network Administrators

Student Comments:

"I now feel that I have a very firm understanding of IPv6 basics. "

"The labs setup with individualized work areas was excellent. Best hands on class I have had in my 25 years."

"This was the most enjoyable training session I have ever been to."

"I enjoyed every bit about the lab[s] very interactive"

"HANDS ON.. love it. "
