Ready or not, IPv6 is here!

IPv6 was developed more than a decade ago, but now is being implemented by both service providers and companies alike primarily due to the lack of IPv4 addresses. This one day hands-on will cover IPv6 concepts, IPv6 Address Basics, and IPv6 basic configuration in a Cisco infrastructure. This workshop is suitable for network engineers, network operators or Systems/IT admin who are responsible about network operation in their organization.


This workshop will help to :

  • Understand the differences and similarities between IPv4 and IPv6
  • Know that deploying IPv6 will enable continued IP networking growth
  • Understand the implications of running out of available IPv4 address space
  • also to remove some of the fear related to IPv6 deployment and to enable it
