This boot camp is an intensive training program designed to educate participants on IPv6, from basic concepts to advanced design and deployment strategies. It covers IPv6 fundamentals, addressing, configuration, routing protocols, transition mechanisms, security considerations, and best practices for successful deployment

The boot camp is ideal for network engineers, system administrators, IT professionals responsible for implementing and managing network infrastructure, and anyone interested in upgrading their skills to include IPv6 knowledge and capabilities.

Participants should have a basic understanding of networking concepts and IPv4. Familiarity with routing protocols and network design principles is also beneficial but not mandatory.

While the boot camp itself does not grant a certification, it prepares participants for various IPv6-related certifications offered by recognized organizations.

This five day program includes lectures, lab sessions, and discussions, led by an experienced instructor, supported by Nterone

Dave Sepeczi

I would just like to say that the whole Training Camp experience was fantastic and I would highly recommend it for anyone that is interested in achieving Cisco certifications. All of the things done by them made for a pleasant experience.

Mike Guzman


Training Camp’s trainers, especially our instructor Jeff, are in a class of their own. John’s blend of industry knowledge and teaching acumen is outstanding



I believe self-study would have been much much harder to comprehend the information and pass the test on a first try. My colleagues who self-studied flunked the first time they took it. I passed the first time after attending the boot camp.

Andrew Horan

I was pleasantly surprised by Training Camp. The teacher was friendly and focused. The topic was presented in an easily understandable way. They have a high success rate. What else is there to say except thank you!
