IPv6 Protocol, Implementation and Migration Training
IPv6 Protocol, Implementation and Migration Training Course – Hands-on
IPv6 is the result of many years of research and activity by the international Internet community. IPv6 provides increased addressing space, improved routing, better security and support for new applications. The implementation of IPv6 is inevitable and will impact on all companies that maintain, implement or use IP networks.
In this IPv6 Protocol, Implementation and Migration Training course, you will learn how to obtain and implement IPv6 protocols within your organisation on, Unix, Linux, Windows, routers and other networked devices. This IPv6 Protocol, Implementation and Migration Training course provides extensive hands-on sessions and in-depth technical analysis.
IPv6 Protocol, Implementation and Migration Training Course – Customize it
- We can adapt this training course to your group’s background and work requirements at little to no added cost.
- If you are familiar with some aspects of this training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
- We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the Training 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 course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
