IPv6 Fundamentals, Design and Deployment (IPv6FD)
Version 2.0

Course Overview:
This five-day course provides baseline through advanced technical information and training on the next-
generation Internet protocol, IPv6. The goal of this course is to prepare the student for transitioning to IPv6 based
networks. IP6FD encompasses IPv6 operation concepts, design considerations, security considerations,
configuration principles, configuration of IOS devices for IPv6, and IPv6 transition mechanisms. Throughout the
course students will be presented justification for the principles, concepts and practices contained in each lesson.
This course will help network engineers understand, configure, and support IPv6 on Cisco devices running IOS
software, and covers IPv6 addressing, IPv6 routing protocols (RIPng, OSPF, BGP, EIGRP, and IS-IS), IPv6
transition mechanisms including tunnels (manual, ISATAP, and 6to4), NAT-PT, and Dual Stack, DNS, DHCPv6,
Multicast, Mobility, IPSEC and IKE, and other security issues related to IPv6.

Who will benefit from this course?
This course is intended for networking professionals who are considering or making the migration from IPv4 to IPv6.
The goal is to gain the skills needed to understand and explain the operation of IPv6, implement IPv6 services and
applications including DNS and DHCPv6 and identify IPv6 security threats and design practices.

To fully benefit from this course, students should have the following prerequisite skills and knowledge:
• TCP/IP networking knowledge
