IPv6 Fundamentals, Design, and Deployment Training
This five-day course aims at providing network engineers and technicians that are working in the enterprise sector with the knowledge and skills that are needed to study and configure Cisco IOS Software IPv6 features. The course also provides an overview of IPv6 technologies, covers IPv6 design and implementation, describes IPv6 operations, addressing, routing, services, transition, and deployment of IPv6 in enterprise as well as in service provider networks, and includes case studies useful for deployment scenarios.
The course will introduce the architecture, components, and features of a Cisco TrustSec network designed around the IEEE 802.1X and RADIUS protocols.
The student will gain hands-on experience with configuring a network for 802.1X-based network services using the Cisco ISE, Cisco Catalyst switches, and Cisco wireless products.
To participate in the hands-on labs in this class, you need to bring a laptop computer with the following:
- Windows 7 or 8.1 or 10 is recommended. Mac OSX 10.6 or greater is supported as well.
- Intel Celeron or better processors are preferred.
- 1 GB or more of RAM
- Browser Requirements: Internet Explorer 10 or greater or Mozilla Firefox. (Safari and Mozilla Firefox for Mac OSX)
- All students are required to have administrator rights to their PCs and cannot be logged in to a domain using any Group Policies that will limit their machine's capabilities.
- If you do not have administrator rights to your PC, you at least need permissions to download, install, and run Cisco Any Connect Client.
- If you are participating in a WebEx event, it is highly recommended to take this class at a location that has bandwidth speeds at a minimum of 1 Mbps bandwidth speeds.
Note: Students registering for this course will be receiving their course kit in a digital format. To be able to view your digital kit you will need to bring a laptop PC and/or a compatible iPad or Android tablet.
Please be aware that this digital version is designed for online use, not for printing. You can print up to 10 pages only in each guide within a course. Please note that every time you click the Print button in the book, this counts as one page printed, whether or not you click OK in the Print dialog.
Upon completion of this session, you should be able to:
- Describe the factors that led to the development of IPv6 and 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
- Implement IPv6 services and applications
- Understand the updates to IPv4 routing protocols needed to support IPv6 topologies
- Understand multicast concepts and IPv6 multicast specifics
- Evaluate the scenario and desired outcome and identify the best transition mechanism for the situation
- 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, in addition to one of the leading IPv6 deployment issues multihoming
- Describe the deployment strategies that service providers might consider when deploying IPv6
- Describe case studies for enterprise, service provider, and branch networks
The knowledge, skills, and attitudes that a learner is expected to have before attending this course are as follows:
