IPv6 General

This training provides a detailed overview of the new version of IP, offering a structured presentation of the IPv6 protocol and the new concepts it introduces.
Code: TLC-006
Duration: 8 hours


This training provides a detailed overview of the new version of IP, offering a structured presentation of the IPv6 protocol and the new concepts it introduces. This course also covers the related protocols that facilitate communication using the IPv6 protocol, such as Neighbor Discovery and Stateless Address Autoconfiguration. Techniques related to the IPv6 coexistence with IPv4 are also detailed: dual-stack, tunnelling and translation mechanisms. Lab sessions are used to verify and reinforce the theory presented in the training.

For me, it was a good presentation. The most useful in course was consideration of IPv6 Addressing scheme.
