Course Overview

IPv6 is the new version of the IP that we use for about 30 years. IPv6 was first introduced to solve the IP address shortage, but includes a lot of improvements over the older version. The seminar presents the principles of the protocol, the addressing mechanisms, the new extensions and services along with the migration process from IPv4.

Who should attend?

Network specialists; product managers and R&D staff who are considering whether their products should support IPv6.

Prerequisite:

Introduction to IP
