SPNGN1 1.0: Managing IPv4 and IPv6 Addressing

This course is targeted at networking engineers who must interface with Cisco IOS, IOS XR and IOS XE devices. Additionally, those who have a need to understand technologies used in the service provider realm will benefit.


Expected Duration
89 minutes

IP addresses have an important structure. This structure provides a hierarchical system so that it may be deployed across the globe. Whether troubleshooting or deploying IP addressing, network engineers need to be able to understand how to work with IP addressing. In this course, you’ll learn about the breakdown of IPv4 and IPv6 addresses and also the ecosystem used for deploying these addresses. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Cisco exam Building Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Networks Part 1 exam (640-875 SPNGN1). This exam counts toward the CCNA Service Provider certification.
