This customized course on IPv6 addresses the knowledge and skill requirements for engineers supporting IPv6 design and implementation for Service Provider customers. The course covers the range of Cisco Products and solutions pertinent to IPv6 in a Service Provider environment, including carrier grade NAT, global routing protocols (in particular, MPBGP) and the Nexus and CSR products. As this course is intended for SEs internal to Cisco, the focus is on designing and implementing the solutions, rather than administering and troubleshooting.

Prerequisites

CCNA or equivalent in experience. Students need a firm grasp of IPv4 routing, switching and related concepts.

Delegates will learn how to

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 possible uses of this new IP structure

  • Understand multicast concepts and IPv6 multicast specifics
  • Evaluate Service Provider IPv6 scenarios and desired outcomes 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 Cisco IPv6-related products pertinent to the Service Provider Market
  • Understand migration strategies for IPv6 including dual stack, 6PE and 6VPE
