Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), the successor to Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4), was developed over 20 years ago but is slow to be adopted. Upon successful completion of this course you will be able to implement IPv6 on your network.
This course is intended to give you an in-depth understanding of IPv6 and related protocols. IPv6 identifies devices across the internet so they can be located. Every device that uses the internet is identified through its own IP address for internet communication to work. The primary function of IPv6 is to allow for more unique TCP/IP address identifiers to be created, now that the 4.3 billion created with IPv4 are exhausted.
Upon completion of this course you will be able to describe IPv6, list IPv6 design considerations, describe static routing, and implement EIGRP for IPv6. You will also be able to describe single-area OSPFv3, configure multiarea OSPFv3, and design and configure IPv6 Access Control Lists.
Prior to enrolling in this course it is recommended that you complete CCTM103, IP Routing Fundamentals, and CCTM203, LAN Switching Fundamentals, or have equivalent training or experience.
