IPv6 Technical Duration: 3 days

IPv6 Technical
This course will describe the fundamentals of IPv6 networking. The training is focused on the protocols and mechanisms defined within IPv6 as well as functions affected by IPv6, such as network design and DNS. Theoretical presentations and hands-on will be mixed during the education.

The target group for this course is is technical personnel or others who need technical knowledge in the area.

The students are expected to have a basic network understanding equivalent to the course Data Communications Fundamentals, as well as a knowledge in TCP/IP equivalent to the course TCP/IP in Practice.

This is a theoretical training with practical exercises.

NOTE: This course is not delivered with the FoldOut methodology.
