Supporting and enhancing network education with a focus on IPv6
IPv6 has become the de-facto network standard in many environments. However our experience with network courses at universities is that IPv6 is not featured at all or only is only covered to a small extent.
With our IPv6 education offer we would like to assist professors, tutors and lecturers to support IPv6 in their courses.
We have not only given many private IPv6 courses at ungleich, but our staff has graduated from ETH Zurich and the university of applied sciences ZHAW. We have experience in the layout and requirements of courses taught at bachelor and master level.
And we teach courses at the Hacking Villa Diesbach.
Knowing how courses look like and what professors, tutors and students expect, we can advise on how to introduce IPv6 into course material. We offer onsite and remote counselling, providing best practices. We usually base our recommendations on your current course material to simply update it for IPv6 without major changes to the course itself.
Typical counselling session:
The hourly rates for educational counselling are available at a reduced rate of 140 CHF/h.
If you are interested in adding a brand new network course focussed on IPv6, we can aid you in creating the course. The setting is similar to the IPv6 lecture counselling, however we will design and develop the course from scratch including your requirements.
Typical course design session:
All material is tracked in version control during development, so it is easy for faculty to review the material in progress. This mode avoids pitfals like inappropriate material development.
If you are interested in educating your faculty to be able to teach IPv6 courses, we provide you with a tailor made IPv6 course.
Typical IPv6 faculty course session:
In some labs and universities the Internet provider (ISP) or the central IT department cannot provide IPv6 support. To help with this issue, we offer the IPv6 VPN with a 10% education discount. Please use your department / university email for contacting us to be eligible for the education discount.
The IPv6 VPN provides you with one /48 network. Inquire the support, if require bigger networks, for instance if you want to equip the complete university with IPv6 connectivity.
The PIB is a versatile, professional router that includes the above IPv6 VPN for one year for free. It is suitable for dividing networks and isolating IPv6 traffic. Specifically useful for student projects or labs.
It can be setup by our staff on-site (hourly rates apply).
The VIIRB is not only the world's smallest IPv6 router, but also a very handy device if you want to add IPv6 to any IPv4 network without a hassle. The VIIRB can also be used to enable IPv6 at the student homes: simple give your students a VIIRB and your students can work on IPv6 related projects at home. It also includes the first IPv6 VPN for free.
