Although IPv6 has been around for last 20 years, only 28% of Internet users currently have IPv6 capability.

This tutorial will help the participants have a better understanding of the IPv6 protocol. We will look at the protocol architecture and address structure in detail, and discuss a practical and scalable IPv6 address plan for both enterprise and service provider networks.


This online tutorial is fee-free.

Target audience

Technical folks who are building or operating a service provider or enterprise network.


It is assumed that the workshop participants have a working knowledge of IP Routing, are comfortable with IPv4, basic linux commands and how to use a router command line interface.
The lab exercises use Cisco CLI and Ubuntu VMs.

We recommend the following Academy courses be completed before the start of the tutorial:
