IPv6 in the Provider Network

Migration Strategies

Provider networks make special demands. The course at hand shows the students what a migration to IPv6 may look like and which are the effects for the infrastructure. It addresses the requirements of the backbone to the same extent as those of the access networks. Hands-on exercises in an IPv6 test network round off the course at hand.
