This book will help a wide audience of networking students and professionals build the solid foundation of IPv6 knowledge they will need to succeed. With the guidance of a world-class networking instructor, readers journey from the absolute basics of IPv6 to real-world implementation and operation. Drawing on his extensive experience teaching these topics, Rick Graziani addresses everything readers need to know, leaving no unexplained gaps that would leave readers confused or unable to apply what they've learned. One easy step at a time, Graziani covers all this, and more:
Why IPv6 is necessary, how it was created, and how it works.
A high-level look at the IPv6 protocol.
IPv6 addressing in depth (and how it differs from IPv4)
IPv6 configuration options for Cisco routers and hosts.
IPv6 routing protocols, including RIPng, EIGRP for IPv6, and OSPFv3
Defining static IPv6 routes.
Leading strategies for IPv6 integration and coexistence
By the time students complete this book, they will be prepared to take on more complex IPv6 topics, including mobility, MPLS, and enterprise migration.
