Safe Migration from IPv4 to IPv6

This course provides engineers and technicians with the knowledge and skills required for the safe migration of networks from IPv4 to IPv6. It is essential that engineers understand the function and addressing of IPv6 and are prepared for this change in internet protocol .This course begins with the IPv6 basics but builds over the 3 days to incorporate the more advanced topics.

It is essential that the initial design of the enterprise network is accurate and topics such as the use of DHCP, DNS and the integration of IPv6 in an IPv4 network are discussed to ensure the correct decisions are made at the design stage.

This course incorporates as much as it possibly can in 3 days including the possibilities of addressing, auto configuration with SLAAC and DHCP, use of DNS, configuration rules for an enterprise network, the configuration of Cisco Routers, Win7 clients and Win2008R2 Servers for IPv6. IPv6 transition mechanisms including tunnels like ISATAP, TEREDO and 6to4 as well as NAT64 are incorporated.

Hands-on labs have been incorporated into the class to ensure delegates get plenty of practice with the most important protocols for the Client/Server (SLAAC, DHCPv6 and DNS), IPv6 routing protocols OSPF and EIGRP, first hop redundancy protocols HSRP and GLBP, and Tunneling with dynamic ISATAP Tunnels.
