Workshop

WIP601: IPv6 Workshop

Duration
3 days
Level of Study
Intermediate

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.

Prerequisites

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.
