IPv6 Training Courses

We have a variety of trainings in IPv6, each tailored to fit your specific needs, geared towards IPv6 developers, business executives, managers, network administrators, network operators, system administrators, and more.

Learn the fundamentals, how your business can transition, and why it will be important in the coming years.

IPv6 Training Courses

IPv6 for Business Executives Training Course

While IPv6 has been available in a multitude of products for many years, it has not always been clear to business executives what the value of moving to IPv6 is. With the rapid depletion of the publicly available IPv4 address space, moving to IPv6 is no longer just an option but a real need. This course is tailored for business executives to help them understand the business and market drivers for moving to IPv6. In a single day it will cover the IPv6 business case, IPv6 Protocols and Standards and how they compare to IPv4, detailed integration strategies, and some real-world experiences to plan for a successful incremental deployment.

IPv6 for IPv4 Developers Training Course

IPv6 for developers is a quick tour of porting an application from IPv4-only to dual-stack. It provides only a brief introduction to IPv6 socket programming in C, PERL, and Python, but should be enough to get experienced developers up to speed on IPv6 socket programming.

IPv6 for Managers Training Course

IPv6 for Managers is designed to provide managers with insight and unbiased information about why IPv6 is necessary and how to decipher all the conflicting advice flowing around in various fora. The course is intended to provide the decision making tools to allow managers to make accurate, informed decisions about when to deploy IPv6 in their environment and how to help their staff effectively transition from an IPv4-only environment to dual stack and eventually to IPv6-only.

IPv6 for Network Administrators Training Course

IPv6 for Network Administrators is designed to provide the basic skills to allow a skilled IPv4 network administrator to deploy and manage a dual-stack (IPv4+IPv6) network and eventually transition to an IPv6-only environment. The course is taught using examples from Juniper and/or Mikrotik routers and the labs are conducted using Quagga on Linux.

IPv6 for Network Operators Training Course

IPv6 has been in development for over a decade and many modern operating systems have IPv6 enabled by default. This course is specifically tailored to network operators who need to understand the technical details of IPv6 and plan how to effectively integrate IPv6 into existing network infrastructures. This two-day curriculum will provide in-depth IPv6 protocol details and enumerate the myriad of transition mechanisms that have been standardized. Real world experiences will be discussed to show how varying transition mechanisms fit into different environments and to detail what issues to be aware of when architecting and deploying for your individual environment.

This course will also provide a thorough understanding of how securing IPv6 network infrastructures compare to securing IPv4 infrastructures and enumerate the best practices for mitigating security risks in IPv6 deployments.

IPV6 for System Administrators Training Course

IPv6 for Systems Administrators is designed to provide the basic skills necessary to administer systems in a dual stack environment. The course uses Linux examples, but the concepts taught can easily be transferred to any operating system. The course focuses on conceptual rather than methodic learning to enable maximum knowledge transfer and applicability.

IPV6 Fundamentals Training Course

This course covers the basics and an introduction to IPv6. This course should be attended by systems administrators, developers, network engineers/administrators, and others with an interest in IPv6 deployment.
