As part of AFRINIC’s commitment to improve capacity in Africa, it is conducting, beginning Tuesday, 13 August 2013 until Wednesday 14 August training on IPv6 in Ndjamena, Chad. The training is being hosted by HTCE Technologies.
The course aims at equipping participants with the knowledge and skills to design an IPv6 address scheme for their organisations; configure IPv6 on Windows/Mac and Linux desktop operating systems; build a routed IPv6 network using both static routing and OSPFv3; and configure tunneling techniques to allow v6-capable sites talk to other v6 sites across a v4-only network.
The course targets network engineers and systems administrators capable of understanding, designing and building IPv4 networks. Participants are expected to already understand: The OSI model and the various protocols that operate at each layer; IPv4 addressing and subnetting; Intra-domain routing and OSPF; Fundamentals of Inter-domain routing with BGP; Basic network services like DHCP and DNS; and how to use the command line interfaces of key routing platforms (for example Cisco IOS).
The training in Ndjamena is one of the series of training courses conducted by AFRINIC in 2013.
The next training workshop will be held in Cotonou, Benin. Other trainings are planned for South Africa, Kenya, Malawi and Morocco among others.
