An effective and efficient IPv4 addressing scheme is a critical component of the overall enterprise network design and this course covers IP version 4 (IPv4) address considerations and recommended practices in the enterprise network. The course also discusses considerations about routing protocol choice that are related to IP addressing, focusing on IPv4. IP version 6 (IPv6) was designed as a successor to IP version 4 (IPv4), to overcome IPv4 limitations and an effective and efficient IPv6 addressing scheme is a one of the main components of the overall enterprise network design. The course concludes with an overview of IP addressing and general considerations for planning a network addressing scheme. It continues with a discussion of the specific considerations and migration strategies for IP version 4 (IPv4) and IP version 6 (IPv6).

Target Audience
