The Ultimate IPv6 Deep-Dive for Engineers

Master the knowledge, skills and techniques needed to lead IPv6 projects that get it right on the first try. Our teach, explore practice method ensures you develop skills

3 KEY TAKE-AWAYS

1 | Address Plan

You'll create the perfect IPv6 Address Plan that's consistent with best current operational practice.

2 | Provisioning Strategy

Image
You'll master the intricacies of provisioning IPv6 configuration using SLAAC, stateful and stateless DHCPv6, DHCPv6-PD etc.

3 | Routing & Transition Strategy

Image
You'll be able to determine the best transition technique to use for any given scenario, and what it takes to implement it.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Analyze IPv4 exhaustion implications on your organization
  • Correctly configure IPv6 on Windows, MacOS, Linux and routers
  • Compare and contrast IPv4 and IPv6
  • Create an IPv6 address plan for any network
  • Interpret all Neighbour Discovery messages
  • Design and implement IPv6 provisioning mechanisms
  • Implement intra & inter-domain IPv6 routing
  • Formulate a Transition strategy for any network

TARGET AUDIENCE

This strictly for engineers who already run IPv4 networks. Typical titles are:

  • Network Engineer
  • Network Administrator
  • Network Analysist
  • Systems Engineer
  • Systems Administrator
  • Systems Analyst

PRE-REQUISITES
