IPv6 Fundamentals: The New Age of Internet Protocol Addresses
IPv6 is here, and it is here to stay, eventually replacing IPv4. It is time for you to build your knowledge of IPv6 so that you are better positioned to embrace IPv6 networks when the time arrives. In this course, you will build a solid foundation around IPv6. You will discover IPv6 addressing and how IPv6 addressing will be deployed. You will identify how ICMPv6 plays a role in IPv6 networks. You will also explore the neighbor discovery process and how IPv6 addresses can be allocated within a network.
Why you should attend?
Learn the fundamentals of IPv6 addressing, so you will be ready to implement IPv6 addressing on your network when the time arrives.
