[IPC_409] IPv6 Networking Workshop for LTE Networks

Printer-friendly PDF version

IP has permeated all facets of the LTE wireless network. In the services realm, the LTE network provides Internet access, Virtual Private Network (VPN) and Voice over IP (VoIP) services, in addition to innumerable multimedia and web-based applications. The underlying transport networks, including backhaul and backbone networks, also rely heavily on IP and related technologies such as Ethernet and MPLS. It is therefore difficult to understate the magnitude of the impact that the transition to IPv6 will have on the LTE wireless network infrastructure. This course examines how IPv6 will be used in the LTE wireless service provider network. It presents the significant features of the new protocol, including addressing, routing, mobility and security. It uses practically-oriented exercises to illustrate how the LTE mobility network may support a mix of IPv4-based and IPv6-based applications and, furthermore, how they may be carried over a mix of IPv4-based and IPv6-based transports.

Learning Objectives

After completing this course, the student will be able to:
• Illustrate, for example, how the LTE mobility nodes may use IPv6 while the legacy 2G/3G mobility nodes continue to use IPv4.
• Use tools such as ping and traceroute to test connectivity in IPv6 networks.
• Compare and contrast IPv4 and IPv6 protocols
• Illustrate how the mobility nodes forward a user’s IPv6 packet through an IPv4 transport network.
• Illustrate how the mobility nodes forward a user’s IPv4 packet through an IPv6 transport network.
• Recognize and interpret IPv6 addresses.
• Explain how IPv6 plug-and-play features simplify network administration.
• Illustrate how IPv6 packets are transported over and MPLS/IPv4 network

Intended Audience

This course is intended for those familiar with the use of IP in wireless networks, but are new to IPv6.
