IPv6: Implementing the Next-Generation Network



Course Number



4 Days


About This Course: This course removes barriers from adopting IPv6 by answering the questions, Why IPv6 and Why Now? Network professionals will gain the knowledge, skills and training to successfully plan and migrate from IPv4 to IPv6. In addition, attendees learn the details of IPv6 addressing and protocols to support new technologies within their organization.

You Will Learn How To

  • Plan, configure and implement IPv6 successfully within your network
  • Design IPv6 addressing and end-to-end communication architecture
  • Apply IPv6 protocols and technologies including security
  • Engage stakeholders and partners for effective integration of IPv6
  • Leverage IPv6 to facilitate future innovation
  • Support the Internet of Everything (IoE) with IPv6
