At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to 

+ Describe the issues surrounding IPv4 depletion and the risks they pose for the continued evolution of the Internet.

+ Make a good case for why NAT is bad and not a sustainable solution to the problem of IPv4 depletion.

Course Deliverables | Understanding and Deploying IPv6 | 3 Days

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

+ Design an IPv6 address scheme for their organisations, implementing current industry best practices

+ Build a routed IPv6 network using OSPFv3 and BGP

+ Plan an IPv6 Transition strategy to fit any scenario, with an understanding of the challenges and advantages of each transition mechanism

+ Configure tunnelling techniques to allow v6-capable sites talk to other v6 sites across a v4-only network.

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

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 http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

[b]  A telnet and/or SSH client to use to log into remote equipment. 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 server.
