Definitive SRv6 for engineers  |    A 1 day   hands on   training course

Definitive SRv6 course description

This one day SRv6 training course is a condensed, intensive program designed to provide network professionals with a fast-track introduction to SRv6 (Segment Routing over IPv6). SRv6 is a revolutionary networking technology that combines the power of IPv6 with the flexibility of Segment Routing, enabling efficient and scalable network operations. In just one day, participants will gain essential knowledge and practical skills to understand, configure, and work with SRv6 in modern network environments. Hands on sessions are used to reinforce the theory rather than teach specific manufacturer equipment.

What will you learn
  • Explain packet paths when implementing SLB.
  • Explain how SRv6 works.
  • Explain the difference between SR and SRv6.
  • Implement SRv6.
  • Troubleshoot SRv6.
