Following are the prerequisites for this course:
● Students should have knowledge of the Cisco IOS XR Software configuration syntax to the
extent covered in the Cisco CRS-1 Essentials, Cisco XR12000 Series Essentials, Cisco
ASR 9000 Series Essentials, or Cisco IOS XR Fundamentals course.
● Students attending this class should be able to establish, without assistance, a configuration
for Open Shortest Path First Version 2 (OSPFv2), Intermediate System-to-Intermediate
System (IS-IS), and Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) with Routing Policy Language (RPL)
policies as accomplished in the Cisco IOS XR IPv4 Routing course labs.
● Students must have a basic understanding of MPLS configuration as covered in any of the
platform-specific Essentials courses or the Cisco IOS XR Fundamentals course.
● Students must have a basic understanding of IPv6 concepts as covered in the IPv6
Fundamentals (IPVSF) course.

This course provides technical training to Cisco service provider customers so that they
can successfully deploy IPv6 on routers running Cisco IOS® XR Software Release 4.0 in
an existing IPV4/Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) environment. We review
fundamental IPv6 behavior, IPv6-supported routing protocols, and mechanisms for
tunneling of IPv6 over IPv4/MPLS. In addition, this course provides extensive hands-on
lab exercises involving two service provider core networks and multiple customer sites
connected into a multiautonomous system Internet.
The course outline is as follows:
● IPv6 Foundations Review (Addressing, Packet Header)
● IPv6 Operation (Router Advertisements, Neighbor Discovery) and Configuration
● OSPFv3 Routing
● IS-IS Routing for IPv6
● MP-BGP Routing for IPv6
● Other IPv6 Routing Protocols (EIGRP, RIPng)
● IPv6 Provider Edge (6PE)
● IPv6 VPN Provider Edge (6VPE)
● IPv6 Multicast
Who Should Attend
This course is for technical professionals who design, implement, and operate IPv6 routing
protocols in a service provider network of routers running Cisco IOS XR Software.
The following are considered the primary audience for this course:
● Network operations center (NOC) engineers
● Network and senior engineers
● Support engineers
