Implementing Cisco Ipv6

Course Description

•    Design, build, configure, and support networks based on Version 6 of the Internet Protocol

•    Overview of history and motivations behind the new protocol, including the limitations

     of the IPv4  address space, Network Address Translation (NAT), fast growth of the

     Internet routing table, international issues, mobility, security, and many other topics

•    Header format, addressing, Path MTU Discovery (PMTUD), IPv6 over link-layer

     technologies, Extended Unique Identifier-64-bit (EUI-64) format, Internet

     Control Message Protocol Version 6 (ICMPv6), autoconfiguration, neighbor discovery

     protocol, Duplicate Address Detection (DAD), and use of DNS with IPv6

•   Comparison with BGP4+, RIPng, IS-IS for IPv6, and OSPFv3 with Cisco IOS(r)

    Software routing references and examples

•   Transitioning from and co-existing with IPv4 using Dual Stack, configured tunnel,

    generic routing encapsulation (GRE), 6to4, 6to4 Relay, Intra-Site Automatic Tunnel

    Addressing Protocol (ISATAP), and Network Address Translation-Protocol Translation

    (NAT-PT) configurations

•   Enabling, configuring, and operating a Cisco router with IPv6 addresses, prefixes,

    IPv6 ACLs, IPv6-enabled routing protocols, CEFv6, and several coexistence mechanisms

•   Host-router interaction with Microsoft Windows, Solaris, FreeBSD, Linux, and Tru64 UNIX

    Preview of Internet IPv6 and address allocation on 6Bone

•   Deploying production IPv6 connectivity in enterprise networks using prefixes allocated by
