+ Design an IPv6 address scheme for their organisations.

+ Configure IPv6 on Windows/Mac and Linux desktop operating systems.

+ Build a routed IPv6 network using both static routing and OSPFv3.

+ Brainstorm solutions to issues holding back IPv6 in their organisations.

Details of our IPv6 modules are available at 

Target Audience:

Network engineers and systems administrators who understand how to 
design and build IPv4 networks. Participants must already understand 
topics like:

+ The OSI model and the various protocols that operate at each layer.

+ IPv4 addressing and subnetting.

+ Intra-domain routing and OSPF.

+ Fundamentals of Inter-domain routing with BGP

+ Basic network services like DHCP and DNS.

+ How to use the command line interfaces of key routing platforms (e.g 
Cisco IOS)

Participants are expected to bring their own laptops which must have the 
following utilities installed:

[a] Virtualbox - a virtualisation software available freely from 

[b] A telnet and/or SSH client. If your operating system does not have 
these installed, you can download and install the following free ones:

+ Terraterm - http://en.sourceforge.jp/projects/ttssh2/releases/

[c] The RIPE whois client freely available from http://whois.sourceforge.net

Please note that although most Linux/unix operation systems have a whois 
client, these do not support most of the flags used by the AfriNIC whois
