Course Description

IPv6 is the next generation of the suite of protocols that make the Internet possible. By mid 2011, the available TCP/IP addresses will be exhausted and moving from IPv4 to IPv6 will no longer be a good idea, it will be an absolute requirement. Marketers are quick to announce that ’IPv6 provides integrated and interoperable technologies to enable exciting new scenarios for personal and enterprise computing.’ IT technicians and administrators fully understand that first and foremost, IPv6 will be a technical challenge. Re-building a 747 airliner while it is still in flight is one way to look at it. In this course, Mark Long will teach you the new concepts, terminologies, and processes of IPv6 to help you get ready for this exciting, albeit challenging, new functionality.
