What you’ll learn

The IPv6 Fundamentals, Design, and Deployment (IP6FD) is an immersive five-day training program designed to equip individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary for the implementation and configuration of the Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) features within Cisco IOS Software. The training comprehensively covers various aspects, including an overview of IPv6 technologies, IPv6 design and implementation strategies, and an in-depth exploration of IPv6 operations, addressing, routing, services, and transition mechanisms. The curriculum also delves into the deployment of IPv6 in both enterprise and service provider networks, offering valuable insights through case studies and hands-on remote labs.

Participants in this training stand to gain 40 Continuing Education (CE) credits, contributing significantly towards their recertification.
