Course Overview

Top

This five-day course provides network engineers and technicians who are working in the enterprise sector with the knowledge and skills that are needed to study and configure the IP version 6 (IPv6) features of Cisco IOS Software. This course provides an overview of IPv6 technologies, covers IPv6 design and implementation, describes IPv6 operations, addressing, routing, services, and transition, and describes the deployment of IPv6 in enterprise and service provider networks. Hands-on labs and case studies are used to provide possible deployment scenarios.

Virtual Learning

This interactive training can be taken from any location, your office or home and is delivered by a trainer. This training does not have any delegates in the class with the instructor, since all delegates are virtually connected. Virtual delegates do not travel to this course, Global Knowledge will send you all the information needed before the start of the course and you can test the logins.

Course Objectives

Top

After completing this course you should be able to:

  • Describe the factors that led to the development of IPv6 and the possible uses of this new IP structure
  • Describe the structure of the IPv6 address format, how IPv6 interacts with data link layer technologies and how IPv6 is supported in Cisco IOS Software
  • Describe the nature of changes to DNS and DHCP to support IPv6 and how networks can be renumbered using both services
  • Understand the updates to IPv4 routing protocols needed to support IPv6 topologies
  • Understand multicast concepts and IPv6 multicast specifics
  • Describe IPv6 transition mechanisms and which methods will be most effective in your network
  • Describe security issues, how security for IPv6 is different than for IPv4 and emerging practices for IPv6-enabled networks
  • Describe the standards bodies that define IPv6 address allocation, as well as one of the leading IPv6 deployment issues, multihoming
  • Describe the deployment strategies that service providers are facing when deploying IPv6
  • Describe case studies for enterprise, service provider, branch and access networks
