Running out of IPv4 space? IPv6 training in Auckland and Wellington

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 29-Jan-2009 19:49

Conferenz will be running the training sessions "IPv6 for Business" in Auckland (20 & 21 April 2009), and Wellington (27 & 28 April 2009).

"IPv4 (IP) addresses are running out around the world. A daily updated trend based prediction currently suggests late 2011, however industry experts are picking the day to be much sooner. Either way, this is well within the lifetime of current equipment and IT solutions within your business.

The IPv6 protocol was designed 10 years ago to eventually replace IPv4 in a gradual adoption, with the two co-existing side by side for several years. This adoption has started to pick up pace significantly in the past year, with most major operating systems and many network equipment vendors now supporting IPv6.

IPv6 for Business will teach you the skills to begin experimenting with IPv6, and planning the adoption of this new protocol in your organisation’s network.

Learning Objectives
• Learn about the history of the Internet and IPv6, its advantages, and the motivation for deploying it in your network
• Gain exposure to the IPv6 protocol, and the IPv6 addressing architecture
• Learn how IPv6 works in the wider Internet, and how to work with your ISP to achieve good IPv6 connectivity
• Understand popular IPv6 tunnelling mechanisms, and how these may already be impacting your network today
• Be able to identify and resolve common IPv6 problems that may already exist in your network today
• Learn how servers and desktop computers interact with each other, and with network equipment such as routers and firewalls.
• Learn how network services such as DNS operate in the IPv6 network.
• Learn about IPv6 support in common software and operating systems.
• Find out what to look for and ask for when considering future proof software and hardware solutions from your vendors.

Who Should Attend?
Anyone who is likely to be affected by the adoption of IPv6 from organisations such as:
• Government departments
• Educational facilities
• Large corporate organisations
• Any organisation involved in the design and maintenance of computer software, components, systems or networks.
Including roles such as:
• IT Managers
• Network engineers
• Network designers
• Network consultants

Training Methodology
This two-day course will use case study examples and group exercises, as well as tutorial sessions. All attendees will be provided with a workbook and supporting slides. It is expected that attendees will have some level of networking experience and a basic understanding of IPv4. Laptops and equipment will be provided, but feel free to bring your own laptop as well.
