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.
