Subnetting in IPv6 is much easier than in IPv4, largely for two reasons. The first is that because the address-space is much larger, we can take a much more structured/readable approach, and also because working with hexadecimal is much easier than decimal, when it comes to subnetting. You will come to appreciate that in this section.
In case students have not already done it, the IPv6 routing for the lab on Interior Routing will be discussed as a class exercise. Even if you haven’t done, or don’t have time to implement the network, all students should understand the basic strategy behind the addressing scheme.
Students should watch the 20-minute IPv6 Subnetting video in the Lab Resources before the tutorial.
