### In the IPv6 address format a colon (:) is used tp separate?

• A.

• B.

Every 2 bytes

• C.

Every 4 bytes

• D.

None of the above

B. Every 2 bytes
Explanation
In the IPv6 address format, a colon (:) is used to separate every 2 bytes in the address. IPv6 addresses are 128 bits long and are represented in eight groups of four hexadecimal digits separated by colons. Each group represents 16 bits or 2 bytes of the address. Therefore, the correct answer is "Every 2 bytes."

### Which IPv6 address is equivalent tp FF01::1?

• A.

FF01:0:0:1

• B.

FF01:1:1:1

• C.

FF01:0:0:0:0:0:0:1

• D.

FF01:1:1:1:1:1:1:1

C. FF01:0:0:0:0:0:0:1
Explanation
The given IPv6 address FF01::1 is equivalent to FF01:0:0:0:0:0:0:1. The "::" notation in IPv6 represents a series of consecutive zeros, so FF01::1 means that there are six consecutive zeros in the address. Therefore, FF01:0:0:0:0:0:0:1 is the correct equivalent address.

### What type of information is sent during RA autoconfiguration?

• A.

Network prefix and default gateway

• B.

Complete IPv6 address for the new host

• C.

Complete IPv6 address for the router

• D.

A. Network prefix and default gateway
Explanation
During RA autoconfiguration, the network prefix and default gateway information is sent. This means that the new host receives the necessary information about the network it is connecting to, including the address range and the default gateway through which it can access other networks. This enables the host to configure its own IPv6 address and establish proper network connectivity.

### In the IPv6 header, the traffic class field is similar to which field in the IPv4 header?

• A.

Fragmentation field

• B.

Fast-switching field

• C.

ToS field

• D.

Option field

C. ToS field
Explanation
In the IPv6 header, the traffic class field is similar to the ToS (Type of Service) field in the IPv4 header. The ToS field in IPv4 is used to prioritize different types of traffic, such as voice or video, and assign them different levels of service. Similarly, the traffic class field in IPv6 is used to classify and prioritize traffic flows based on their requirements, allowing for more efficient and optimized routing of packets. Both fields serve a similar purpose in determining the treatment of different types of traffic in their respective IP versions.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### Which three features are important in ipv6? (choose three)

• A.

• B.

Security

• C.

• D.

• E.

B. Security
Explanation
IPv6 has a larger address space compared to IPv4, allowing for more unique IP addresses to be assigned. This is important as the number of devices connected to the internet continues to grow. Security is also crucial in IPv6, with features like IPsec being built into the protocol to ensure secure communication. Additionally, IPv6 has a simpler header compared to IPv4, which improves efficiency and simplifies network operations.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### The multicast address range for IPv6 is which of the following?

• A.

F000::/8 - FF0F::/8

• B.

FF00::/8 - FFFF::/8

• C.

F000::/8 - FFFF::/8

• D.

FF00::/8 - FF0F::/8

B. FF00::/8 - FFFF::/8
Explanation
The correct answer is FF00::/8 - FFFF::/8. This range represents the multicast address range for IPv6. Multicast addresses in IPv6 are used to send packets to a group of devices rather than a single device. The FF00::/8 prefix is reserved for multicast addresses, and the range extends up to FFFF::/8.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### If an IPv4 header is typically 20 bytes long, how long will an IPv6 header be (assuming no option field)?

• A.

20 byte

• B.

40 byte

• C.

60 byte

• D.

80 byte

B. 40 byte
Explanation
The IPv6 header is typically 40 bytes long, which is twice the size of an IPv4 header. This is because IPv6 was designed to support more advanced features and provide a larger address space compared to IPv4. The increased header size allows for the inclusion of additional fields and options in the IPv6 header.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### Which function does the flow label field in the IPv6 header perform?

• A.

Priority queuing

• B.

Fast-switching queuing

• C.

Mulitilayer switching techniques

• D.

Fragmentation

C. Mulitilayer switching techniques
Explanation
The flow label field in the IPv6 header performs multilayer switching techniques. This field is used to identify and classify packets belonging to the same flow or communication session. It allows routers to make intelligent decisions on how to handle and forward packets, improving the efficiency and performance of the network. By using multilayer switching techniques, such as traffic engineering or load balancing, routers can optimize the flow of packets and ensure the smooth delivery of data.

• 10.

### How is the TTL field in the IPv4 header represented in IPv6?

• A.

TTL has not changed from IPv4

• B.

It is the hop limit

• C.

TTL is not required in IPv6

• D.

It is the maximum routers field

B. It is the hop limit
Explanation
In IPv6, the TTL field in the IPv4 header is represented as the hop limit. This field serves the same purpose as the TTL field in IPv4, which is to prevent packets from circulating indefinitely in the network. The hop limit specifies the maximum number of routers that a packet can traverse before being discarded. Therefore, the correct answer is "It is the hop limit."

Rate this question:

• 11.

### Which is an attractive feature of a 6to4 tunnel?

• A.

The tunnel automatically establishes itself

• B.

The tunnel requires manual configuration

• C.

The routers require no special code to support this tunnel technique

• D.

Tunnel routers are not required at both ends of the tunnel

A. The tunnel automatically establishes itself
Explanation
An attractive feature of a 6to4 tunnel is that it automatically establishes itself. This means that the tunnel is able to set up and configure itself without requiring manual intervention or configuration. This feature makes it convenient and efficient to use as it saves time and effort for the user.

### Extension headers in IPv6 are used for? (choose two)

• A.

• B.

• C.

• D.

Explanation
Extension headers in IPv6 are used for two purposes: routing and fragmentation. The routing header is used to specify the route that a packet should take through the network. It allows a packet to be forwarded along a specific path, rather than relying solely on the destination address. The fragment header is used to break a large IPv6 packet into smaller fragments that can be reassembled at the destination. This is useful when the size of the packet exceeds the maximum transmission unit (MTU) of a network link. The source option header and broadcast header are not valid uses of extension headers in IPv6.

### In Junos software, which three routing protocols can be used to route IPv6? (choose three)

• A.

IS-IS

• B.

Static

• C.

RipV2

• D.

OSPFV2

• E.

MP-BGP

A. IS-IS
B. Static
E. MP-BGP
Explanation
IS-IS, Static, and MP-BGP are the three routing protocols in Junos software that can be used to route IPv6. IS-IS (Intermediate System to Intermediate System) is a link-state interior gateway protocol that supports both IPv4 and IPv6. Static routing is a manual configuration of specific routes and can be used for both IPv4 and IPv6. MP-BGP (Multiprotocol Border Gateway Protocol) is an extension of BGP that supports multiple protocols, including IPv6. OSPFv2 and RIPV2 are not mentioned as options for routing IPv6 in Junos software.

Rate this question:

• 14.

### Which default JUNOS routing table contains IPv6 unicast routes?

• A.

Inet.6

• B.

Ipv6.0

• C.

Inet.0

• D.

Inet6.0

D. Inet6.0
Explanation
The correct answer is inet6.0. This routing table is specifically designed for storing IPv6 unicast routes. The "inet6" prefix in the table name indicates that it is dedicated to IPv6 routing. The other options (inet.6, ipv6.0, inet.0) do not specifically mention IPv6, indicating that they are not meant for storing IPv6 unicast routes.

Rate this question:

• 15.

• A.

• B.

• C.

Multicast

• D.

Anycast

C. Multicast
D. Anycast
Explanation
IPv6 does not use broadcast addresses because they were replaced with multicast and anycast addresses. Multicast allows a single packet to be sent to multiple destinations simultaneously, while anycast allows a packet to be sent to the nearest destination out of a group of potential destinations. This improves efficiency and reduces network congestion compared to traditional broadcasting.

Rate this question:

• 16.

### How many bytes is an IPv6 address?

• A.

4

• B.

8

• C.

12

• D.

16

D. 16
Explanation
An IPv6 address is represented by 128 bits, which is equal to 16 bytes. Each byte consists of 8 bits, so 16 bytes multiplied by 8 bits per byte gives us a total of 128 bits. Therefore, the correct answer is 16.

Rate this question:

• 17.

### In IPv6 autoconfiguration, what does "RA" mean?

• A.

Remote access

• B.

• C.

• D.

Explanation
In IPv6 autoconfiguration, "RA" stands for Router Advertisement. Router Advertisement is a message sent by a router to inform other devices on the network about its presence and to provide them with necessary network configuration information, such as the network prefix and default gateway. This allows the devices to automatically configure their IPv6 addresses and network settings without the need for manual configuration.

Rate this question:

• 18.

### How long is an IPv6 address?

• A.

• B.

32 decimal numbers

• C.

128 bits

• D.

32 bits

C. 128 bits
Explanation
An IPv6 address is 128 bits long. IPv6 uses a 128-bit address format, allowing for a significantly larger number of unique addresses compared to IPv4. This longer address length is necessary to accommodate the growing number of devices connected to the internet. The address is represented as a series of hexadecimal numbers, separated by colons, making it 16 hexadecimal numbers in total.
