IPv6 Fundamentals LiveLessons (Video Training)

Video Description

Learn about IPv6 addressing and address types, dynamic IPv6 address assignment using SLAAC, stateless DHCPv6 and stateful DHCPv6, DHCPv6 prefix delegation, ICMPv6 Neighbor Discovery, and routing IPv6 using EIGRP for IPv6 and OSPFv3, including named EIGRP and OSPFv3 address families.

 

 

Description

 

IPv6 can be challenging for everyone, from CCNA students to seasoned network engineers. The transition to IPv6 has begun, mostly due to the long-anticipated problem of IPv4 address exhaustion. The lessons in this video give you a strong foundation in understanding the IPv6 protocol, including IPv6 addressing and address types; dynamic IPv6 address assignment using SLAAC; stateless DHCPv6 and stateful DHCPv6; ICMPv6 Neighbor Discovery; address resolution; and routing IPv6 using EIGRP for IPv6 and OSPFv3, including named EIGRP and OSPFv3 address families. Using the information in this video, you will understand how IPv6 is implemented in a network. The author provides a series of short instructional videos that clearly explain these and other IPv6 topics. These videos will help those already familiar with IPv4 become confident in their understanding and implementation of IPv6.

 

 

About the Instructor

Rick Graziani teaches computer science and computer networking courses at Cabrillo College in Aptos, California, where he has also implemented IPv6. Rick has worked and taught in the computer networking and information technology field for nearly 30 years. Prior to teaching, Rick worked in IT for various companies, including the U.S. Coast Guard, Santa Cruz Operation, Tandem Computers, and Lockheed Missiles and Space Corporation. He holds an M.A. in computer science and systems theory from California State University, Monterey Bay. Rick is also a member of the Cisco Academy Curriculum Engineering team and has presented at many Cisco Networking Academy Conferences throughout the country. He often presents on IPv6 fundamentals and routing IPv6, and is the author of the Cisco Press books  IPv6 FundamentalsImplementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE) Foundation Learning Guide (CCNP ROUTE 300-101)Routing Protocols Companion Guide, and  Connecting Networks Companion Guide.
