Description

Many engineers work their whole careers without ever really looking under the hood to understand why a network was designed the way it was. Some of this is because their day to day duties don't require this knowledge, and some of this is because an engineer chooses to focus their knowledge on becoming exceptional operational engineers. In this course, Enterprise IPv4/IPv6 Design for CCDA DESGN (200-310), you'll take a look at many of the different skills that are required to develop an IPv4 and IPv6 addressing plan. First, you'll discover several of the different fundamental concepts that are required to understand IPv4 and IPV6 addressing including binary math, masks, classes, subnetting and CIDR. Next, you'll focus in on the IPv4 addressing plan, specifically the questions that must be asked and what to look for, common addressing standards, a discussion about design hierarchy and a look at how these concepts can be applied using the Globomantics network. Finally, you'll follow a similar structure for the IPv6 addressing design and will focus in on the IPv4 and IPv6 services that are associated with addressing assignment, including the different assignment methods, NAT, and DNS. By the end of this course, you'll have a firm base of understanding of IPv4 and IPv6 addressing and addressing planning, as well as the knowledge of the common important services that are often implemented along with an addressing plan.

Course Overview
Welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Sean Wilkins, and I am a network engineer, author, and technical editor at infoDispersion. I'm excited to welcome you to my course, Enterprise IP and IPv6 Design for CCDA DESGN. This course is one of many courses that are being introduced into the Pluralsight library to cover networking design. This course specifically is targeted on IPv4 and IPv6 addressing and addressing design. The focus is to offer a primer of both and discuss the different considerations that need to be taken when putting together an enterprise-sized addressing plan. The modules that we will cover include IPv4 and IPv6 addressing basics, including a review of various IPv4 and IPv6 concepts that are part of the required knowledge needed when working with addresses, IPv4 address planning and assignment including a detailed discussion focusing on the different steps in building an IPv4 addressing plan, IPv6 address planning and assignment including the same basic framework laid out in the previous module, but with the focus on IPv6, and IPv4 and IPv6 services including a review of the different methods of addressing assignment, networking address translation, and device naming. By the end of this course, you'll have a firm base of understanding of IPv4 and IPv6 addressing and addressing planning, as well as the knowledge of the common important services that are often implemented along with an addressing plan. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with networking fundamentals including an understanding of how networking devices interconnect together and at least a basic understanding of both versions of IP. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn networking design with the Enterprise IP and IPv6 Design for CCDA DESGN course, at Pluralsight.

IPv4 Address Planning and Assignment
Hello everyone, and welcome to Enterprise IP and IPv6 Design for CCDA DESGN. My name is Sean Wilkins, and this is the IPv4 Address Planning and Assignment module. In this module, we are going to move on from the basics covered in the previous module and work on the details that are required to develop an IPv4 addressing plan. There are a lot of different moving parts that a network designer must keep in mind when developing this plan. This module discusses a number of these different parts and how they should be considered when performing this development. It starts with a section on IPv4 address planning questions, specifically covering a number of the common questions that must be answered to properly develop a plan that fits the requirements of each specific environment. It then moves into discussing some IPv4 addressing standards that are commonly followed when developing an IPv4 addressing plan before moving on with a section on hierarchical planning and summarization. It then finishes up with a detailed IPv4 addressing plan for the Globomantics network that has been covered throughout each of the CCDA courses. So now with all this out of the way, let's get started.

IPv6 Address Planning and Assignment
Hello everyone, and welcome to Enterprise IP and IPv6 Design for CCDA DESGN. My name is Sean Wilkins, and this is the IPv6 Address Planning and Assignment module. In this module, we are going to move on from the IPv4 addressing plan and discuss those same concepts as they relate to an IPv6 addressing plan. Most of these high-level concepts are the same or very similar between the two, and because of this, the structure of this module will mirror the previous one. This module will start with a section on IPv6 address planning questions covering a number of the common questions that must be answered to properly develop a plan that fits the requirements of each specific environment. It then moves into discussing some IPv6 addressing standards that are commonly followed when developing an IPv6 addressing plan before moving on to a brief discussion of IPv6 and IPv4 differences. We then move on with a section on hierarchical planning and summarization and finish up with a detailed IPv6 address plan with the Globomantics network that has been covered throughout each of the CCDA courses. So now with all this out of the way, let's get started.

IPv4/IPv6 Services
Hello everyone, and welcome to Enterprise IP and IPv6 Design for CCDA DESGN. My name is Sean Wilkins, and this is the IPv4 and IPv6 Services module. Now that we have gone through the addressing basics, as well as IPv4 and IPv6 address planning, we will end this course with a module on addressing related services. This module will start with a section on IPv4 addressing assignment, specifically covering the methods that are used to assign the addresses laid out in the addressing plan to the devices on the network. We will then cover these same methods, but with IPv6 devices. We'll then move on to a discussion on network address translation, or NAT, for both IPv4 and IPv6 before moving on to cover the domain name system, or DNS, for both as well. We will finish up this module with a section covering all of these concepts and how they relate to the Globomantics network. So now with all this out of the way, let's get started.
