Skills Gained:

• Review the limitations of the current IPv4.
• Understand the formats of TCP, IP, UDP and others, plus the functions of the supporting protocols, such as ARP, RARP, DNS, BOOTP, RIP and OSPF.
• Study the various TCP processes, including connections, sequence control, and flow control, and how these may be impacted by the migration to IPv6.
• Learn the key features of IPv6: larger addresses and security.
• Analyze the formats of the IPv6 packet header, extension headers, and other constructs.
• Gain insights into how the IPv6 transition will affect other functions at the routers and hosts.
• Explore the affects of IPv6 on other elements of your internet or intranet architecture.
• Learn how leading vendors such as Cisco Systems, Sun, IBM, and Microsoft are implementing IPv6.
• See how the implementation of IPv6 will allow expansion of the global Internet to continue.
• Plan your strategic transition to IPv6.
• Learn of public domain sources of further info.

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
