Intermediate IPv6 Migration

Group Training + View more dates & times


The advanced IPv6 class designed for students that already possess introduction skills and have a good foundation knowledge of IPv6. This course covers all you need to know about IPv6 migration and deployment strategies. You will gain an understanding of how deploy IPv6 using both stateless and stateful auto-configuration techniques. Configure Advanced OSPF, EIGRPv6, IS-IS and MP-BGP routing protocols. Configure a live MPLS 6PE network while tunneling IPv6 over an IPv4 network. Discuss different IPv6 security vulnerabilities and current security issues.

Who Should Take This Course


Students attending this course should have:

  • A novice to intermediate-level understanding of computer networking and security, to include IPv4 and IPv6
  • Fluency in basic computer functions such as web browsing and network configuration
Why You Should Take This Course

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Understand DHCPv6 along with hands-on labs demonstrating deployment of DHCPv6 within a company’s intranet.
  • Understand interior routing protocol EIGRPv6, OSPFv3 and IS-ISv6 in a real world lab deployment.
  • Understand exterior routing protocol BGP4+ and how it integrates with IPv4 along with its IPv6 deployment.
  • Understand advanced deployment methods are covered using DS-LITE, NAT64, DNS64 and 6rd (Rapid Deployment).
