This course builds on the foundation established in 605.677: Internetworking with TCP/ IP I. The architecture and operation of the Internet is examined. The classful addressing concept are introduced and the mapping of Internet addresses to physical addresses is discussed along with the extensions to the addressing paradigm: subnet addressing, classless addressing, and network address translation. Performance enhancements that provide quality of service (QoS) over the Internet and faster routing through the use of IP switching techniques are discussed. Techniques for providing multicasting and mobility over the Internet are examined. The next generation IP protocol (IPv6) is introduced. The changes and enhancements to the IPv4 protocol and addressing architecture are examined. The techniques developed for transitioning from IPv4 to IPv6 are discussed in detail. Security considerations are addressed through an examination of Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) and the IP Security (IPsec) protocols. New transport layer protocols to overcome the limitations of TCP are examined. The convergence of circuit and packet switching is discussed. Finally, Voice Over IP (VoIP) protocols are examined in detail. Topics include subnet addressing, CIDR, DHCP, DNS, NAT, IntServ, DiffServ, RSVP, CIP, MPOA, IP Switching, Tag Switching, MPLS, IP Multicast, IGMP, Reliable Multicast, Multicast Routing Protocols, IP Mobility Home and Foreign Agents, Tunneling, Proxy and Gratuitous ARP, IPv6 Addressing, IPv6 protocol and extension headers, Neighbor Discovery, IPv6 Stateless Address Autoconfiguration, DHCPv6; dual stack, protocol translation, and tunneling transitioning techniques; 6to4, ISATAP, and Teredo protocols; VPN Tunneling; PPTP, L2F, L2TP and SOCKSv5 VPNs; ESP, AH, and IKEv3 security protocols; Head-of-line blocking, multihoming; SCTP, Multipath TCP, and QUIC transport protocols; VoIP, H.323 Gateways and Gatekeeper; and SIP, SDP, RTP, MGCP, and Megaco/H.248 protocols.
