General description

IPv6 touches many parts of a network. IPv6 has left the "early implementers" state and is going mainstream. Today, the amount of IPv6 traffic in the Internet doubles every 9 month, and it is expected that 50% of all traffic in the Internet will be IPv6 by 2018.

IPv6 has much more benefits than a larger address space: simpler network planning and management, new applications, leaner networks.

This training is designed for people that have already have some IPv6 experience and knowledge, but want to dive deeper into the details IPv6 brings to network design and management. This training is being updated for every scheduled training with the latest RFCs and news from the IETF and vendor.

Have a look at our IPv6 Fundamentals Hands-on on class if you are looking for an introduction to IPv6.
