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

Course Prerequisites:

This course to appeals to anyone needing the skills and knowledge of Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) routing and networking. The ideal student will have some experience in IP networking and operations, however no prior knowledge is necessary.
