Introduction to IPv6
IPv6 Certification Project 1 ("Administrator" on Windows) (25 pts.)
Course DescriptionIn 2012, the IPv4 address pool will be exhausted. New devices will have to use the new IPv6 address system instead. Over the next several years, we will all have to implement IPv6 on all our routers, servers, applications, and end devices. This class introduces the essential steps of IPv6 deployment, with many hands-on projects.
Prerequisite knowledge: Students should be familiar with IPv4 addresses and routing at the Network+ level.
