IPv6 Technical

New New  


This course will describe the fundamentals of IPv6 networking. The training is focused on the protocols and mechanisms defined within IPv6 as well as functions affected by IPv6, such as network design and DNS. Theoretical presentations and hands-on will be mixed during the education.

Target group

The target group for this course is is technical personnel or others who need technical knowledge in the area.


The students are expected to have a basic network understanding equivalent to the course Data Communications Fundamentals, as well as a knowledge in TCP/IP equivalent to the course TCP/IP in Practice.


This course is available as scheduled training and the presentation is given in English or Swedish. The course is mixing theory and practical exercises. We can also give this course as on-site training. If you are interested in customized education, don’t hesitate to contact us for further information.
