IPv6 Boot Camp Training 2018.

TAlthough IPv4 still carries the majority of Internet traffic, IPv6 is the latest revision and is anticipated to carry most of the traffic in the coming years. With so much to be learned about this communications protocol, an IPv6 boot camp training course is necessary for any IT Professional in the field.

This 2-day training offers a great overview of the important facts to know about the new protocol for everybody who is involved with the integration of IPv6. It is of great value to everybody that architect’s networks, defines strategies and concepts, plans for test and pilots and evaluates IPv6 support with vendors. It also discusses coexistence of IPv4 and IPv6 as well as transition mechanisms defined which will make the integration as smooth as possible.

This training will be conducted by a renowned IPv6 Certified Trainer who brings nearly 10 years of hands-on IP experience in front of his classroom.
