IPv6

Although slow to catch on across the global Internet, IPv6 is gaining in popularity, particularly within private IP transport networks such as those used in telecoms and enterprise environments. This course centres around the use of IPv6, from initial migration options through to addressing and header format. The course also covers the extensions associated with IPv6, with focus on security and QoS.
