This session provides a comprehensive overview of the main IPv6 routing protocols: IS-IS, OSPFv3, EIGRP and BGP. These IPv6 routing protocols will be compared to their IPv4 counterparts, both from a theoretical and practical design and deployment perspective. Similarities and differences between the twin routing protocols will be discussed. In addition, configuration examples for IOS and IOS-XR will be provided. I’ll discuss in-depth CLI output (e.g. Link State Database) focusing on the differences with IPv4 routing protocols. Finally, the co-existence of IPv4 and IPv6 routing protocols will also be covered. As a pre-requisite for this session, attendees should have a good understanding of the corresponding IPv4 routing protocols.
