About this Course

Code TPIP1402
Duration 3 Days

This course provides a detailed look at IPv6 and in particular how this will apply to telecommunications markets from the User Equipment up through the Service Providers networks and out into the internet. All the essential topics, such as IPv6's new addressing and packet formats; the variety of ways that IP addresses can be allocated to devices and the relevant standards bodies are covered, however we also look at the new IPv6 messages and ICMPv6 in particular, as well as investigating the numerous deployment options from Dual Stacking through tunnelling techniques and address translation methods. The course ends with a review of the deployment and transition states that IPv4 and IPv6 networks are likely to evolve. Based on real examples from live networks, this course includes three labs each exploring key techniques in address translation and tunnelling.


A good understating of IPv4 and its related protocol ecosystem (TCP; UDP; etc.) would be of benefit.

Who Should Attend

This course is suitable for engineering and technical management staff who have a good appreciation of legacy IPv4 networks and who require a detailed understanding of IPv6 for both fixed and mobile networks.
