What Will I Learn?
  • Once you finish my course, you will have a strong grasp on the concepts of IPv6 and methods to use in different networking environments. You will be able to configure any of the routing protocols discussed using IPv6. You will learn how to dual stack your router using both IPv4 and IPv6 to help in the transition to a fully implemented IPv6 environment.
  • The understanding of IPv6 is an essential element for any Networking and/or IT Professional. This course will prepare the student for any networking certification such as N+, CCNA, MCSE to include any Computer Science Degree.
View Curriculum
  • Students should have an understanding of the IPv4 Protocol and hexadecimal numbers.

This course is approximately 4 hours in length and will cover IPv6 protocol in detail. I will compare the differences between the IPv4 to IPv6, and the benefits that IPv6 brings to the future of networking.

DISCLAIMER:   Please note that the simulators/emulators used in this course are not part of the course. It is the students responsibility to have these to practice with. The Cisco Packet Tracer and/or VIRAL (Virtual Internet Routing Lab) are Cisco proprietary software and can only be obtained through Cisco. It is up to each student to obtain the simulator/emulator of their choice to study along with this course.

Students will get a thorough understanding of IPv6 and how we would implement it in a real world environment.

We will discuss the format of an IPv6 address, and breakdown the different components, like the Network Prefix, Interface ID, what each 16 bit section does and specifically the subnetting section of IPv6. We will learn about the new types of addresses that comes with IPv6, its configurations using RIPng, EIGRP for IPv6, OSPFv3 using both static assigned addresses and the EUI-64 format. We will also learn about the transition methods such as ISATAP, 6to4, and NAT-PT.

This is a lecture based course using the Touch-IT Technology Smart board, which will make learning very interactive and engaging. Hands on labs will be used to drill down the concepts learned in each lecture using Cisco’s Packet Tracer.

My method will make you feel like you are sitting in a classroom environment and give the most needed hands on experience!

Handouts will be available to facilitate learning and practice.

This course will help the student become familiar with the use of IPv6, recognizing IPv6 addresses and how to implement them in your environment…but it will also help in preparing for any networking certification or Computer Science Degree; not to mention the fact that for those already in the field, it will further improve routing decisions in their particular networks.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is intended for anyone that is preparing for a network certification or Computer Science Degree. However, it does go beyond that, it is also intended for those Networking and/or IT Professionals that are already in the field and need a better understanding of IPv6.

Transition Mechanism
1 Lecture 11:45

In this lecture we will briefly discuss the transition mechamisms that are in place that helps us make the move over to IPv6, such as DUAL Stacking using both an IPv4 and IPv6 address on the router, 6to4 tunneling to get accross a WAN from an IPv6 to an IPv4 network and NAT-PT if your using NAT in your company this would be a temporary solution to use.

2017 will be our year to achieve our many goals! ...yes, I include myself here as well.

If you are determined, ambitious and hungry for a new beginning...then 2017 should be your year!  

...and how better to start or end the year than to get your Cisco Certification!

Whether you are interested in the CCNA R/S, the CCENT, ICND2, the CCNP, or you just want to understand the key topics of these certification, taking one or ALL of my courses, will get you a lot closer to that goal with my courses.

But, don't take my word for it...please take a look at the FREE previews (they are available in all my courses) and see for yourself.

As for me, 2017 will be the year of putting out new courses for different types of IT certifications among other things.

These will include, not just Cisco courses, but also CompTIA & Microsoft courses as well.

I also hope to complete my second book based on ALL the Routing Protocols in 2017.

My first book is available in AMAZON and it's called "The Only IP Book You Will Ever Need!"

So, yes, with all these great plans for the future, my schedule will be quite full but fulfilling!

What you wanted to know about me:

If you are tired of the same old methods of learning and want someone that is pretty much unconventional, but at the same time will provide you with an enjoyable learning experience in layman's terms...then please preview my courses and you will discover that I am your guy.

I am a Network Engineer with over 15+ years in the field and in the teaching industry. I hold the following certifications: CCNA, CCNA Security, CCNA Voice, Security+, Network+, A+, MCP, MCTS & MOS and since I passed the first of two test for the CCIE, I hope to complete the second half in 2017! 

My teaching experience stems from teaching at institutions like Palm Beach Community College, New Horizons, Florida Career College (now Anthem College) and The Academy of South Florida, not to mention teaching at my own training facility in Miami, Florida and now being if several e-Learning platforms world-wide.

Having been in all sides of the spectrum; as a student, a teacher/trainer, and in the field, I believe this uniquely qualifies me to understand the student, and what they have been exposed to as opposed to what they really want to accomplish. These two are sometimes extremely conflicting and frustrating. That is why I teach in the manner I do and can relate to the student's rejection of the Status Quo.

I have taught corporate employees at MetroPCS (now T-Mobil) and have also taught IT professionals of companies like The Florida Marlins, Ulysse Nardin, Alberta Water Department (Canada), The Assurant Group, Hospital personnel & Attorney's firms, among others. to guide them in acquiring their CCNA certification and/or their Microsoft certifications; like the MOS (Microsoft Office Specialist). YES!...I am also an applications instructor and also teach Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access.

I teach in an unconventional way that allows for students to understand the subject matter and can therefore, not only prepare them for a Cisco and/or Microsoft certification exam, but apply my methods in the real world. I strive to give the student a greater opportunity to compete in the current job markets. Do I go above and beyond what is needed for a certification?...YES, I do!...because it's not only about getting a certification, it's also about making sure the student is prepared for a job interview and/or maintaining their current job by enhancing their skills. This is where I step in and make sure that the student is prepared for whatever they need and make them an asset to their employer. Everyone has different requirements and I make sure, or at least I try, to provide information for most scenarios.

My classes and/or courses are very simple and that's how I like to teach. I truly believe in "KISS",,,NO, I don't want to kiss you, what this means "keep it simple stupid" - If things are kept simple, easy and explained in a way that the student can grasp quickly and retain the information...then I have achieved my goal!

For those that do not know me yet, you may not be used to my style of teaching, but you will soon get accustomed to it :)... I'm very laid back, I try to make learning fun and I teach in layman's physics jargon or mumbo jumbo in my teachings. My courses are very interactive and extremely dynamic! will not find my lectures monotone or boring, because falling asleep, for lack of excitement, is just NOT an option. Just take a look for yourself at my video previews, which I always provide on ALL my courses, so you can determine if I'm the right guy to help you get your industry specific certifications. ;)

I certainly hope that after a careful review of my credentials & testimonials (you can Google it you know!), I'm the Cisco & Microsoft Instructor you're looking for!
