Price: $3,395.00

Call for availability 855-211-9361

This powerful, hands-on course covers all you need to know about IPv6 technology and 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 security, VoIP, Quality of Service (QoS), and other networking technologies for medium to large enterprises.

In this 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 IMCPv6 protocol vs. ICMP in IPv4.

You'll also learn about IP Security (IPSec), 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, you will 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.
