IPv6 Fundamentals, Design and Deployment (IP6FD) 3.0

Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:                   

  • 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 the standards bodies that define IPv6 address allocation, as well as one of the leading IPv6 deployment issues, multihoming.
