IPv6 Foundations: Protocols, Services, and Migration

Learn the essentials for integrating IPv6 into your existing IPv4 network.

GK# 9105

Course Overview

In this course, you will gain a complete understanding of the differences between the IPv4 and IPv6 protocols, critical pre- and post-deployment installation techniques to ensure successful migration, and how to deploy mixed IPv4/IPv6 networks. Through detailed hands-on labs, you will configure IPv6-over-IPv4 tunnels and explore and understand the expanded roles of the IMCPv6 protocol vs. ICMP in IPv4.

You'll also learn about IP Security (IPSec), Access Control Lists, and DNS implementation within an IPv6 network, as well as IPv6 auto-configuration vs. stateful and stateless DHCPv6 configuration of IPv6-enabled devices. Finally, you will gain invaluable real-world experience as you configure and set up IPSec tunnels, explore DNS implementation, configure and analyze Access Control Lists, and configure routers with various IPv6 routing protocols in informative hands-on labs.
