The U.S. military is ratcheting up the pressure on its network suppliers to deploy IPv6 on their own networks and Web sites so they can gain operational experience and fix bugs in the products they are selling

   companies to use their own IPv6 products, a practice known as "eating your own dog food" in tech industry parlance.
