  • Identify how IPv6 is supported in DNS and DHCP
  • Examine how the routing protocols have been modified to support IPv6
  • Define the changes to QoS with the introduction of IPv6
  • Describe how multicasting is supported by IPv6
  • Explain the IPv6 transition mechanism available for the integration of IPv6 into the network
  • Identify and illustrate IPv6 security threats and design practices
  • Understand the mobile IP model and the advancements made through Mobile IPv6
  • Examine the IPv6 multihoming issue and identify the current solutions under development in the IETF
  • Compare and contrast different methods for deploying IPv6 in both enterprise and service provider networks
