The article reports on the mandate released by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for federal agencies to comply with the application of the Internet Protocol version6 (IPv6). The mandate only allocates six months for federal chief information officers (CIO) to upgrade or implement the IPv6 in their network, however, must agencies does not impose the system diligently. The OMB mandate on the used of IPv6 aims to advance the availability of IP address spaces, support direct Internet connections as well as network management support. NTT America vice president of IP development Doug Junkin predicts that the mandate will just come and go and people will maintain the same operation in their network unless more efficient and interesting mandates are available.
