The primary audience for this course is network engineers and technicians who are working in the enterprise sector
This five-day course provides network engineers and technicians who are working in the enterprise sector with the knowledge and skills that are needed to study and configure the IP version 6 (IPv6) features of Cisco IOS Software. This course provides an overview of IPv6 technologies; covers IPv6 design and implementation; describes IPv6 operations, addressing, routing, services, and transition; and describes the deployment of IPv6 in enterprise and service provider networks. Hands-on labs and case studies are used to provide possible deployment scenarios.
