The Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) provides a wide range of new functions that the current IPv4 cannot cover or can only cover with very complex upgrades. Addressable storage that is fast becoming exhausted and integrated support for security mechanisms makes IPv6 the suitable successor.
After the initial scepticism of users and manufacturers, the number of implementations is increasing rapidly in the meantime. Meanwhile, both with regard to terminals and in the network environment there are practical implementations and IPv6 is on the threshold of the scientific laboratory environment up to the globally usable communications protocol.
The introductory workshop shows the changes that IPv6 offers, how the different solutions were implemented and how new IPv6 based networks can be combined with existing IPv4 networks.
- IPv6 128-bit Address-Format (Unicast- / Multicast- / Anycast-Addresses)
- IPv6 Address hierarchy in the IPv6 Internet
- IPv6 Header
- ICMPv6 (Neighbor Discovery)
- DHCPv6 Management
- DNS-Management (AAAA Record)
- Routing-Protocols (RIPng, OSPFv3, EIGRP, ISIS, MBGP)6PE, 6VPE
- Various Tunneling Techniques
- IPv6 NAT
- IPv6 Best Practices
Length of the workshop and previous knowledge:
The workshop has been designed for a length of one day. It is also possible to be tailored to your individual needs, of course.
Participants should have basic knowledge in IP internetworking (OSI 7-layer model, IPv4, ICMPv4, ARP/RARP etc.)
