The Advanced IPv6 training course is a two-day course that covers IPv6 topics relevant to a network infrastructure. Topics include implementing IPv6 in routing protocols like OSPF or BGP, content delivery over IPv6, mobile networks, transition mechanisms or host configuration scenarios. Hands-on labs are also provided.
NOTE: If you have already deployed IPv6 on your network, this course may not be appropriate for you. Please read the pre-requisites, course content and goals before registering.
You should attend this training course if you are part of the staff of a Local Internet Registry (LIR) and if you:
It is assumed you are familiar with IPv4 and IPv6 (Basic IPv6 course level) networking, basic networking concepts and protocols (OSPF, BGP), (for the labs) CLI and command line tools.
The course doesn't cover:
IS-IS, EIGRP and RIP
IPv6 for End Users
How to operate a Local Internet Registry (LIR)
IPv6 basic knowledge
IPv6 Security in depth
Identify what the differences are between IPv6 and IPv4 regarding routing protocols
Learn how to implement OSPFv3 and BGP in an IPv6 network
Understand the aspects of IPv6 that differ from IPv4, especially regarding host configuration, SLAAC and DHCPv6
Recognise the existing solutions to provide a smooth transition to IPv6
Acquire a general understanding of the major issues with IPv6 regarding security and IP address management
Configure IPv6 with OSPF and BGP in a test network
