IPv6 Explained (3d.)


"Lesgever was zeer duidelijk in het overbrengen van de informatie - Kent zijn vak tot in de puntjes - lesgever beantwoordde de gestelde vragen zeer compleet.”

Sven Clabots, One Acces

Do you want to safeguard your network by becoming proficient in IPv6 and all transition mechanisms?

On 3 February 2011 all available address blocks for IPv4 were exhausted. It was time, therefore, for the new generation: IPv6. The new Internet protocol for assigning IP addresses is a must for your business continuity and will enhance your network communications and services, notably via autoconfiguration and multicasting services. Protocols and services such as DHCP, DNS, ICMP and QoS have been significantly improved. As all new equipment operates through IPv6, you’d best prepare yourself. This training course enables you to do that in the context of a live IPv6 network.
