Course length: 1.0 day(s)
You are familiar with the TCP/IPv4 protocol suite and how it works. In the near future, IPv4 will be succeeded by the updated version of IP, IPv6. In this course, you will examine the enhancements made to TCP/IPv4 and some related protocols. You will also examine the various transition strategies adopted to upgrade from TCP/IPv4 to TCP/IPv6.
Course Objective: You will examine the features of TCP/IPv6 and the various transition strategies used for upgrading from TCP/IPv4 to TCP/IPv6.
Target Student: This course is for existing TCP/IPv4 network administrators who want to know the basics of TCP/IPv6. Specifically, it is intended for those preparing to pursue a career as a networking professional, or who need to interact effectively with network professionals. The basic information presented in this course will enable students to pursue further specialized training in specific technology areas.
Prerequisites: Students should have taken the TCP/IPv4: A Comprehensive Guide course from Element K or have equivalent knowledge.
Delivery Method: Instructor led, group-paced, classroom-delivery learning model with structured hands-on activities.
Systems with the following configuration are required for the students and their instructor:
- At least 256 MB of RAM.
- Intel® Pentium® III 133 MHz (or greater) processor.
- SVGA (or better) video card and monitor.
- At least 5 GB of free hard disk space.
- Mouse or other pointing device.
- 12x (or faster) CD-ROM drive.
- Network adapters and media.
- Projection system for the instructor's computer.
- Internet access.
- Microsoft® Windows® XP (Service pack 2 and above)
The setup instructions and classroom activities were designed and tested for systems running Microsoft® Windows® XP. Windows XP should be installed on all computers, including the instructor's computer.
- The instructor should have at least one copy of the Microsoft® Windows® XP installation CD-ROM available in the classroom.
- Microsoft® Internet Explorer® 6.0
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- examine the necessity of IPv6 and identify some of the deployment strategies.
- examine the IPv6 address notation and the classification of IPv6 addresses.
- examine the packet structure of IPv6.
- examine the features of Internet Control Message Protocol version 6 (ICMPv6).
- identify the security features of IPv6.
- examine the enhancements made to IP routing protocols to support IPv6 networks.
- examine the Quality of Service in IPv6.
- identify the modifications made to the upper layer protocols of the IP suite.
- examine the interoperability features of IPv6.
- describe the mobile IPv6 protocol.
