IPv6 Enabling the Internet of Things (IoT)

3 Days / 5 Live Online Sessions (0900-1230) / Technical Level: Level 2

Course Code: IP1402

Course Summary

This 3-day course provides a detailed look at IPv6 and in particular how this will apply to telecommunications markets from the User Equipment up through the Service Providers networks and out into the internet. All the essential topics, such as IPv6’s new addressing and packet formats; the variety of ways that IP addresses can be allocated to devices and the relevant standards bodies are covered, however, we also look at the new IPv6 messages and ICMPv6 in particular, as well as investigating the numerous deployment options from Dual Stacking through tunnelling techniques and address translation methods. The course ends with a review of the deployment and transition states that IPv4 and IPv6 networks are likely to evolve.

Based on real examples from live networks, this course includes four labs each exploring key techniques in address translation and tunnelling.

Delegates explore a set of practical exercises which investigate the workings of IPv4/IPv6 translation, IPv6 tunnelling and NAT64.

Who would benefit

Those people who specialise in IP design planning, implementation or support would benefit strongly from attending this course, including design, planning and operations staff. This course is aimed specifically at people working for fixed or mobile telecommunications.


An understating of IPv4 and its related protocol ecosystem (TCP; UDP; etc.) would be of benefit.

Topic Areas Include
