In this course, you will gain the knowledge and skills needed to configure Cisco IOS software IPv6 features. You will get an overview of IPv6 technologies, design, and implementation. You will also learn about IPv6 operations, addressing, routing, services, and transition. By reviewing case studies, you'll learn to deploy IPv6 in enterprise and service provider networks.



Highlights:
  • Factors that led to the development of IPv6 and possible uses of this new IP structure
  • Structure of the IPv6 address format
  • How IPv6 interacts with data link layer technologies
  • How IPv6 is supported in Cisco IOS software
  • Implementing IPv6 services and applications
  • Changes to DNS and DHCP required to support IPv6
  • How networks can be renumbered using DNS and DHCP
  • Updates to IPv4 routing protocols needed to support IPv6 topologies
  • Multicast concepts and IPv6 multicast specifics
  • The best transition mechanism for a given scenario
  • How security for IPv6 is different than for IPv4
  • Emerging security practices for IPv6-enabled networks
  • Standards bodies that define IPv6 address allocation and one of the leading IPv6 deployment issues: multihoming
  • Deployment strategies that service providers might consider when deploying IPv6

Prerequisites:
  • ICND1 and ICND2 or CCNA certification
  • ROUTE or CCNP-level understanding of networking and routing
  • Working knowledge of the Microsoft Windows operating system


Audience:

Network engineers and technicians in the enterprise sector
