Why this IPv6 course?

IP version 6 (IPv6) is widely recognised as the protocol and network standard that the Internet, mobile networks, mobile devices, and indeed all IP networks, will migrate to. This unique hands-on practical IPv6 training course provides an in-depth insight into IPv6 features, benefits, operation, co-existence with IPv4 and migration to IPv6.

Who should attend this IPv6 course

  • Network managers, network designers, networks consultants and IT support staff responsible for planning or supporting IPv4 or IPv6 networks.
  • All staff responsible for evaluating or implementing IPv6.
  • Vendors of IPv4 and IPv6 products.

IPv6 Course Pre-requisites

Delegates must have a thorough understanding of IPv4 protocols, addressing, implementation, configuration and testing on Microsoft Windows systems prior to attending this IPv6 training course. Course 313: IPv4 Protocols, Analysis, Troubleshooting and Support, or equivalent experience, is recommended.

Hands-on Practicals

This intensive IPv6 course features carefully-crafted hands-on practical labs. Delegates work with current implementations of IPv6, including IPv6 on Cisco routers, IPv6 on Microsoft Windows.

Lifetime Post-Course Support

After completing this IPv6 training course, delegates receive lifetime post-training support from LEVER Technology Group, to help them apply the technologies and skills they have learned with us, to provide career-long support, and to ensure they are better equipped for their future roles in IT and networking.
