- The Internet Protocol (IP) is showing its age. Conceived nearly two
decades ago as a means of interconnecting millions of computers, IP
is showing the strain as today's networks seek to interconnect the
world's billions of people. In response to the recent explosive
growth in computer network applications is the next generation
(version 6) of the Internet Protocol.
IPv6 (also known as IPng) will offer a vastly expanded addressing
scheme, security enhancements, and other features that truly will facilitate global interconnection.
The IPv6 protocol has been in development for over five years now
and there are more than 30 prototype implementations publicly
available for testing. More than 250 sites are connected to a
world-wide "test" network running IPv6.
This seminar is aimed at technical consultants and others who work
with TCP/IP and want to start learning about IPv6. The seminar will use prototype versions of IPv6 running on Compaq host and routing platforms to demonstrate some of the new concepts and features of the IPv6 protocol.
- Understand IPv6 technology
- Experience Compaq's prototype version of IPv6
- Understand industry direction and market trend

of the Internet Protocols.
