Teach Me IPv6 IPv6 Hands-on Foundations

 

IPv6 Hands-on Foundations is an IPv6 Forum Certified Course (Gold) [pending] that is comprised of approximately 50% lecture and 50% hands-on labs, spanning 4 full days.

This course can be delivered either on-site or virtually. A remote access IPv6 hands-on lab system is used in either delivery method, requiring the participant to have: a computer, a Java enabled browser, and an Internet connection.

 

Course objectives

     Understand the fundamental differences between IPv4 and IPv6

     Understand IPv6 address architecture

     Configure IPv6 on infrastructure, network, and client devices

     Understand and configure DHCPv6 services

     Understand IPv6 impact/differences on network applications

     Understand and configure IPv6 supported routing protocols

     Observe dual-stack (IPv4 & IPv6) operations

     Understand and configure IPv6 related security issues

     Understand and configure IPv6 transition technologies

Prerequisites

A strong networking background is expected, with hands-on configuration of network infrastructure devices as well as client/server operating systems. An understanding of IPv4 addressing, subnetting, and CIDR is also expected. General understanding of how network applications (DNS, DHCP, Web, Mail) operate on a network. An overall understanding of TCP/IP and the OSI reference model is expected.
