IPv6 Fundamentals, Design and Deployment (IP6FD) v3.0

Cisco IPv6

The IPv6 Fundamentals, Design, and Deployment (IP6FD) 3.0 course is an instructor-led course presented by Cisco training partners to their end-user customers. This five-day course aims at enabling learners to study and configure Cisco IOS Software IP version 6 (IPv6) features. The course is a technology course covering IPv6 design and implementation topics. It provides an overview of IPv6 technologies, briefly covers history of IPv6, describes IPv6 operations, addressing, routing, services, transition, and deployment of IPv6 in enterprise networks. The course also includes case studies useful for deployment scenarios.
