[IPC_202] Exploring IPv6

Printer-friendly PDF version

The roots of the current Internet stretch back over twenty years to its beginnings in academic institutions. The fact that it has been able to adapt and scale to today’s global network is a testament to the solid design principles used in its creation. However, as the number of Internet nodes continues to grow and new demands are placed on it by evolving cellular wireless networks, the current IPv4-NAT architecture no longer suffices and we must consider a transition to an updated protocol. This course explores the IPv6 protocol, which brings not only a vast address space to address millions of billions of network nodes but also a bag of new tricks. Streamlined and simplified, IPv6 incorporates a number of companion protocols into its core specification. This course covers these general topics as well as the adoption of IPv6 in next generation 3GPP and 3GPP2 wireless services.

Learning Objectives

After completing this course, the student will be able to:
• Discuss the different requirements of an IP network
• Analyze the limitations of IPv4 networks
• List the key aspects of IPv6
• Sketch the IPv6 addressing architecture and the new types of IP addresses
• Describe the Plug-n-Play capabilities of IPv6
• Describe wireless mobility solutions in IPv6
• Identify the impact of IPv6 on related protocols
• Describe the use of IPv6 in 3G/4G wireless networks

Intended Audience

This is an introductory course and does not assume any previous knowledge of IPv6. It is suitable for wireless professionals who want to gain an awareness of IPv4’s real limitations, the key issues with IPv6’s new capabilities, and how to transition the networks.
