IPv6 Fundamentals, Design, and Deployment


This authorized five-day course aims at providing network engineers and technicians with knowledge of next-generation Internet Protocol, IPv6. This course will help network engineers to understand, configure, and support Cisco devices running IOS software IPv6 features. The course also provides an overview of IPv6 technologies, covers IPv6 design and implementation, describes IPv6 operations, addressing, routing, services, transition, and deployment of IPv6 in enterprise as well as in service provider networks, and includes case studies useful for deployment scenarios.
