Module Learning Outcome
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
# Module Learning Outcome Description
MLO1 Compare and contrast IPv6 and IPv4 protocol format.
MLO2 Design, calculate and apply subnet masks and addresses to fulfil given requirements in an IPv6 network.
MLO3 Configure and troubleshoot IPv6 on routers and implement static IPv6 routes and dynamic routing protocols for IPv6.
MLO4 Plan, design and deploy IPv6 including into an existing IPv4 network.
MLO5 Discuss in detail the features and functions of the ICMPv6 protocol.
MLO6 Discuss and implement dynamic addressing in IPv6.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named DkIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
