Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
  • Describe the factors that led to the development of IPv6, and the possible uses of this new IP structure
  • Describe the structure of the IPv6 address format, how IPv6 interacts with data link layer technologies, and how IPv6 is supported in Cisco IOS Software
  • Describe the nature of changes to DNS and DHCP to support IPv6, and how networks can be renumbered using both services
  • Understand the updates to IPv4 routing protocols needed to support IPv6 topologies
  • Understand multicast concepts and IPv6 multicast specifics
  • Describe IPv6 transition mechanisms and which methods will be most effective in your network
  • Describe security issues, how security for IPv6 is different than for IPv4, and emerging practices for IPv6-enabled networks
  • Describe the standards bodies that define IPv6 address allocation, as well as one of the leading IPv6 deployment issues, multihoming
  • Describe the deployment strategies that service providers are facing when deploying IPv6
  • Describe case studies for enterprise, service provider, branch, and access networks
