Enterprise IPv4/IPv6 Design for CCDA DESGN (200-310)

by Sean Wilkins

This course will teach several of the different skills that are required to develop an IPv4 and IPv6 addressing plan.

What you'll learn

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.
