TIP601: IPv6 Essentials
|Level of Study||Intermediate|
This course provides an understanding of IPv6 and its structure, operation, and technical features. IPv6 addressing and architecture is discussed in detail, and the issues related to the deployment, transition, and coexistence with IPv4 are examined.
This course also includes configuration and demonstration of IPv6 on host computers as well as IPv6 network building and configuration examples. IPv6 policy and address allocations are discussed, as are the issues related to the current status of IANA IPv4 free pool allocations and the deployment status of IPv6.
Anyone interested in learning about IPv6 should attend this course, as well of those involved in IPv6 planning and deployment will benefit from this training.
The practical and demos are particularly important for operational engineers, while the more general discussion and review of issues involved would be highly relevant to managers and other decision makers.
After completing this course students will be able to:
- Have a thorough understanding of IPv6 and its features
- Know the protocol differences between IPv4 and IPv6
- Understand IPv6 addressing and perform subnetting
- Understand the different transition technologies
