    Course Details


    The Cisco® IOS® XR IPv6 Routing for Service Providers (XIPV6R) Version 3 course provides technical training to Cisco service provider customers so that they can successfully deploy IPv6 on routers running Cisco IOS XR Software 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 to a multiple Cisco Autonomous system Internet.


    Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:

    • Characterize the types of IPv6 addresses, changes made to IP packet headers, and how neighbor discovery takes place
    • Describe the various integration technologies that can be employed in implementing IPv6
    • Describe the changes made to IPv4 routing protocols to support IPv6
    • Configure IPv6 routing protocols on Cisco IOS XR Software routers and verify operation
    • Configure and verify operation of IPv6 multicast
    • Implement IPv6 provider edge (6PE) in an IPv4/MPLS environment
    • Configure a multiple-area OSPF domain and verify operation
    • Implement IPv6 VPN provider edge (6VPE) in an IPv4/MPLS environment



    • IPv6 Foundations Review (Addressing, Packet Header)
    • IPv6 Operation (Router Advertisements, Neighbor Discovery) and Configuration
    • OSPFv3 Routing
    • IS-IS Routing for IPv6
    • Multiprotocol-BGP (MP-BGP) Routing for IPv6
    • Other IPv6 Routing Protocols (EIGRP, RIPng)
    • IPv6 Provider Edge (6PE)
    • IPv6 VPN Provider Edge (6VPE)
    • IPv6 Multicast

    Lab Outline

    • Enabling IPv6 on Cisco IOS XR Software and Implementing Static IPv6 Routing
    • Implementing OSPFv3 Routing
    • Implementing IS-IS Routing for IPv6 Integrated with Existing IPv4
    • Implementing MP-BGP Routing for IPv6 over Existing IPv4 Peerings and IPv6 Peerings
    • Implementing 6PE on Existing provider edge routers
    • Implementing IPv6 Multicast Using Protocol-Independent Multicast (PIM) with Static Rendezvous Points, Bootstrap Routers, and Embedded Rendezvous Points

    Target Audience
