  • Understand the formats of TCP, IP, UDP, and others, plus the functions of the supporting protocols, such as ARP, RARP, DNS, BOOTP, RIP, and OSPF.
  • Study the various TCP processes, including connections, sequence control, and flow control, and how these may be impacted by the migration to IPv6.
  • Learn the key features of IPv6: larger addresses and security.
  • Analyze the formats of the IPv6 packet header, extension headers, and other constructs.
  • Gain insights into how the IPv6 transition will affect other functions at the routers and hosts.
  • Explore the effects of IPv6 on other elements of your internet or intranet architecture.
  • Learn how leading vendors such as Cisco Systems, Sun, IBM, and Microsoft are implementing IPv6.
  • See how the implementation of IPv6 will allow the expansion of the global Internet to continue.
  • Plan your strategic transition to IPv6.
  • Learn public domain sources of further info.
  • We can adapt this Implementing TCP/IP and IPv6 Networks course to your group’s background and work requirements at little to no added cost.
  • If you are familiar with some aspects of this Implementing TCP/IP and IPv6 Networks Training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
  • We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the Implementing TCP/IP and IPv6 Networks course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
  • If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the Implementing TCP/IP and IPv6 Networks Training course in a manner understandable to lay audiences.
