IPv6 Course (IPv6 Configuration, Operation and Maintenance Course)

IPv6 course focusing on IPv6 Configuration, Operation and Maintenance.

IPv6 training covers IPv6 management and troubleshooting and a look into network connectivity, tools such as trace route, Ping, Netstat and communications trace functions to test connections and routes for both types of networks.

In this IPv6 training course, you will gain the knowledge and skills needed to configure, operate, maintain and troubleshoot IPv6 networks. You will get an overview of IPv6 technologies, configuration, operation, maintenance and troubleshooting techniques and tips. You will also learn about IPv6 operations, addressing, routing, services, and transition. By reviewing case studies, you’ll learn to deploy IPv6 in enterprise and service provider networks.
