WIP601: IPv6 Workshop

DeliveryWorkshop
Duration3 days
Level of StudyIntermediate

Synopsis:

This technical workshop is made up of lectures and hands-on lab exercise to teach the concept of IPv6 protocol architecture, its addressing structure, design issues when planning for IPv6 deployment focusing on IP core network. It discusses network infrastructure design principles for dual stack deployment, OSPFv3, MP-BGP, transition technologies etc. Also presented for understanding and to encourage best practice knowledge.

The course includes considerable practical work based on IPv6 and Cisco IOS router configuration commands.

Target Audience:

Both Entry and/or mid level technical staff of ISP, network operators or enterprise, who are involved in day-to-day network operation and planning function.

Pre-requisites:

It is assumed that participants have a basic understanding of network operations, Internet technologies, OSI reference model, TCP/IP and familiar with router operating system software (i.e Cisco IOS etc). It is also recommended that the participants attend TIP601 course prior to attending this course.
