IPv6 has been heavily discussed for more than a decade. Some people therefore think that it will take forever. Fact is that IPv6 is well-engineered and mature and will be the basis of our future networks, the Internet and especially the Internet of Things (IoT). In 2018 more than 20% of the global Internet population has IPv6, in Switzerland it is over 30%. This 2-day-workshop shows, what future services are possible with IPv6. It describes the important and new functions of IPv6 from the technical aspect, compares these with IPv4 and gives a good overview of existing transition and coexistence mechanisms of IPv6 with IPv4. The course can be presented with Hands-on exercises which give you the opportunity to become familiar with the new protocol. The communication is analyzed with Wireshark Trace Files. The course also discusses planning and deployment best practices.


2 days (9 AM to 4 PM).
