IPv6 Foundations: Protocols, Services and Migration Training

IPv6 Foundations: Protocols, Services and Migration Training Course with Hands-On Exercises (Online, Onsite and Classroom Live)

This powerful, hands-on IPv6 Foundations: Protocols, Services and Migration Training course covers all you need to know about IPv6 technology as well as its implementation and deployment within your network environments. The IPv6 protocol offers 128-bit IP addresses compared to IPv4's 32-bit addresses and plays a growing role in network deployment, support, troubleshooting, and other networking technologies for medium to large enterprises.

In this IPv6 Foundations: Protocols, Services and Migration Training course, you will gain a complete understanding of the differences between the IPv4 and IPv6 protocols, critical pre- and post-deployment installation techniques to ensure successful migration, and how to deploy mixed IPv4/IPv6 networks. Through detailed hands-on labs, you will configure IPv6-over-IPv4 tunnels and explore and understand the expanded roles of the ICMPv6 protocol vs. ICMP in IPv4 and how to deploy IPv6 within an enterprise network.

You’ll also learn about IPSec Security, Access Control Lists, and DNS implementation within an IPv6 network, as well as IPv6 auto-configuration vs. stateful and stateless DHCPv6 configuration of IPv6-enabled devices. Finally, gain invaluable real-world experience as you configure and set up IPSec tunnels, explore DNS implementation, configure and analyze Access Control Lists, and configure routers with various IPv6 routing protocols in informative hands-on labs
