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
that support the next-generation Internet protocol.
For years, the Defense Department in public forums and private conversations has been pushing network hardware and software
companies to use their own IPv6 products, a practice known as "eating your own dog food" in tech industry parlance.

Now, with depletion of IP addresses using the current standard known as IPv4 expected to occur next year, the Pentagon is
taking a tougher stance with network suppliers that are marketing -- but not using -- IPv6.
