The American military has taken the first steps toward migrating its network to IPv6. Last week, the U.S. Department of Defense completed the first phase of testing, in what many are calling the largest and most ambitious IPv6 interoperability demonstration ever put together.

In collaboration with the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (IOL), the North American IPv6 Task Force, Internet2, and more than 30 networking vendors, testing vendors, and service providers, the DOD assessed the interoperability of standard IPv6-enabled network gear in a nationwide testbed.

Despite the scale of the test, it was designed for the DOD and may have little impact on commercial applications. None of the test results have been published, so nobody really knows the results.
