Ipav6 is 128bits then Ipav4 is _______Bit.
Please tell me.

Farhat said: (Apr 18, 2012)  
Ipv4 is 32-bits

Divya Tiwari said: (Apr 29, 2012)  
IPv6 is the successor to the Internet's first addressing infrastructure, Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4). In contrast to IPv4, which defined an IP address as a 32-bit value, IPv6 addresses have a size of 128 bits. Therefore, IPv6 has a vastly enlarged address space compared to IPv4.

what is IPv6 and IPv4

Richard said: (Sep 21, 2012)  
Internet protocol version 6 is using 128 bits.
Internet protocol version 4 is using 32 bits.

Muthu said: (Oct 8, 2012)  
Which place IPv6 protocol will be used ?

Imran said: (Nov 24, 2012)  
In America IPv6 are being used.

Freddymyat said: (Dec 13, 2012)  
What is the main factor of different between IPv4 and 6?

Technogeek said: (Dec 14, 2012)  
It's all about address size for internet protocol.

Manikanta said: (Dec 31, 2012)  
What is the main difference in IPv6 & IPv4?

Hari Ram Saini said: (Jan 16, 2013)  
IPv4 have 4 octet and IPv6 have 16 octet and all the octet are 8 bits. So IPv4 32 bits and IPv6 128 bits.

Smriti said: (Jan 18, 2013)  
The difference between IPv4 and Ipv6 is the size of bit address only.

Sathish said: (May 22, 2013)  
IPv6 is 128 bits and IPv4 is 64 bits. As @Divya Tiwari mentioned IPv6 is the successor of IPv4.

Nisha said: (Jul 23, 2013)  
What is internet protocol?

Saravanan said: (Jul 28, 2013)  
Internet protocol which used set of rules or procedure to connect network.

Gokulesh said: (Jul 31, 2013)  
Internet protocol version 6 is using 128 bits.

Internet protocol version 4 is using 32 bits.

Naman said: (Aug 15, 2013)  
Recently ipv4 is being used in laptops and desktops but in some pc's option of ipv6 are also given for the future use.

Nilesh Chouhan said: (Sep 1, 2013)  
I know that ipv4 using 32 bits but. Let me explain anyone that how its possible to ipv6 using 128 bits?

Debendra said: (Sep 26, 2013)  
Internet protocol version 4 is using 32 bits.

Ram said: (Nov 12, 2013)  
IPv4 - 32 bit-- represent in Octet form.
Example -- -> 01000101.01011001.00011111.11100010->
4 octets -> 4x8 ->32 bit.

IPv6 - 128 bit(hexa decimal format).
Example -- 2002:4559:1FE2:0000:0000:0000:4559:1FE2 -> 8 x 16 -> 128 bit.

Hope this helps.

In india, which IP version we are using yet?

Prof. T.D. Purohit said: (Dec 15, 2013)  
We are using both IP version 6. and IP version 4 . IP version 6 is Simple Internet Protocol and IP version 4 is Internet Protocol base on TCP/IP which means transmission control protocol over internet, Thanks @Prabhu.

Kirthi said: (Feb 13, 2014)  
Using IPv6, what is the main use?

Brijesh Nishad said: (Feb 22, 2014)  
It is not available in India but it is using in other foreign country like USA UK JAPAN IPv6 more time faster than IPv4 because it have the 128 bit rate.

Gaurav Raj said: (Mar 20, 2014)  
Using IPv6, what is the main use& explain non technical words?

Rakesh Panwar said: (Mar 20, 2014)  
An IPv6 address is 128 bits long.

Shona said: (Apr 11, 2014)  
Tell me more about ipv6?

Vishnuvaradhan said: (Apr 20, 2014)  
Why ipv6 are not using in india?

Manish said: (Apr 28, 2014)  
Still that infrastructure are not made and we are not ready to use this IPV6.

Csk said: (May 7, 2014)  
Please explain the ipv4 in assigning address to the clients?

Ashish Sharma said: (May 23, 2014)  
What is ipv4 in definition?

It Support India said: (Jul 1, 2014)  
Definition - What does Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4) mean?

Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4) is the fourth revision of the IP and a widely used protocol in data communication over different kinds of networks. IPv4 is a connectionless protocol used in packet-switched layer networks, such as Ethernet. It provides the logical connection between network devices by providing identification for each device. There are many ways to configure IPv4 with all kinds of devices - including manual and automatic configurations - depending on the network type.

IPv4 is based on the best-effort model. This model guarantees neither delivery nor avoidance of duplicate delivery; these aspects are handled by the upper layer transport.

Hareesha said: (Jul 29, 2014)  
Already many protocols are available like TCP/IP, UDP, and so on. But what is the main use of IPv4. What is the difference between them?

Nagaraju said: (Sep 29, 2014)  
IPV4 is the 32bit and IPV6 is the 128bit its taken long size and it's infrastructure is didn't made in India so we are not using IPV6.

As compared to IPV4 it is the most faster.

Prabhu said: (Sep 30, 2014)  
Why we go ipv4 to ipv6? What about ipv5?

Sankar said: (Oct 29, 2014)  
What is Ethernet?

Mani said: (Nov 5, 2014)  
Ethernet is a physical and data link layer technology for local area networks (LANs). Ethernet was invented by engineer Robert Metacafe.

When first widely deployed in the 1980s, Ethernet supported a maximum theoretical data rate of 10 megabits per second (Mbps).

Later, so-called "Fast Ethernet" standards increased this maximum data rate to 100 Mbps. Gigabit Ethernet technology further extends peak performance up to 1000 Mbps, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet technology also exists.

Briefly describe Internet protocol.

Manish said: (Jan 18, 2015)  
IPV6 = 128 bit.

S.Prakash Kumar said: (Jan 21, 2015)  
I want ipv6 definition.

Sagar said: (Feb 2, 2015)  
Same as ipv4 its successor.

Mangesh said: (Feb 13, 2015)  
Why need for IPV6?

Nitin said: (Feb 16, 2015)  
Ipv6 128 bit and dividing into 6 group each group is 8 bit.

Sudhakar said: (Feb 21, 2015)  
Which Ipv used in 64-bit? Please reply me.

Balaram said: (Feb 26, 2015)  
Where we use IPV6 and IPV4? Please tell me.

Vijai said: (Mar 13, 2015)  
Sir, why they introduced IPV6 what about IPV5?

Deepak Kumar Singh said: (Mar 24, 2015)  

Please explain it that ip4v is 32 bit how can you say? Please give me answer.

Dinesh said: (Apr 24, 2015)  
What is need for use ipv6 in place of ipv4?

Ravi said: (Jul 9, 2015)  
How networks send information to clients?

Hemanth said: (Aug 14, 2015)  
Is that IPV6 FTP is better than IPV4?

Suneel said: (Aug 16, 2015)  
Yes IPV6 is better than IPV4.

Sai said: (Aug 22, 2015)  
How many IPV's are present from the beginning? How they are differ from each other? Please answer this.

Dev Kumar said: (Sep 24, 2015)  
IPv6 is a 128 bits because its divided into 8 block and each block consists 16 bit because it is in hexadecimal so its 128 bits long.

For an example:

Suppose we have an ipv6 ABCD:12CD:00AC:BC23:0000:0000:1234:0000.

So ABCD is in hexadecimal. We will be convert in binary form.

After converting it will be 1010101111001101.

What is mean by ipv4 & ipv6?

Prasad K.I said: (May 6, 2016)  
ipv4 32 bits.
ipv6 128 bits.

Umer said: (Jun 16, 2016)  
Because IPV5 means 40 bits. And in networks only these value exists 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128 and so on.

Prasad K said: (Jan 31, 2017)  
Please explain in-depth about ipv6 and ipv4.

M.Ali said: (Feb 12, 2017)  
How many bits are in one octets of IP?

M.Ali said: (Feb 12, 2017)  
IPv4 equal to how many number of bytes?

Dipankar said: (Mar 16, 2017)  
It is 32-bit.

Ambedkar said: (Mar 27, 2017)  
What is FTP?

Vishal said: (Apr 6, 2017)  
FTP is nothing to do with IPV4 & IPV6.

The FTP full form being File Transfer Protocol. It is used when you are sending an attachment over a mail.

Jagadeesh Gannavarapu said: (Jul 12, 2017)  
Thank you all for your valuable information.

Amit said: (Aug 28, 2017)  
Can you tell me how to see data transmitted?

Dinesh said: (Oct 5, 2017)  
How to tell ipv 128?

Arunkumar said: (Oct 11, 2017)  

We are using bsnl network using Dlink router its connected switch. Switch to patch panel. When I connected switch port to system or laptop its internet working fine. Next, when I connect the to from switch to patch panel internet will go very slow it's working very slow down what is the issue please let me know?

Sahil Khan said: (Jan 2, 2018)  
Why 128 bit use in the IPV6 version?

Karthik said: (Feb 6, 2018)  
Please explain IPV5.

Elanchezhiyan said: (Feb 22, 2018)  
Because ipv4 only 4.3 million but world population 7.3 million but ipv6 is 340 trillion trillion trillion so only extract the bits 32 to 128 bits.

Melvin said: (Jun 19, 2018)  
In India which IP version yet we are using?

Arjun said: (Jul 14, 2018)  
In India all are using only Ipv4. After a few years they reached to using Ipv6.

Kashish said: (Jan 30, 2019)  
When will we be able to use ipv6? Please give details.

Tojendra said: (May 9, 2019)  
What types of infrastructures needed for implementation ipv6 different than ipv4? Please tell me.

Raja said: (May 22, 2019)  
This is a class less ip.

Sharmaarke said: (Nov 14, 2019)  
Please calculate when IPv4 = 64bits.

Hitesh said: (Jan 6, 2020)  
IPv6 addresses are 128 bits in length and are made up of hexadecimal characters. In IPv4, each octet consists of a decimal number ranging from 0 to 255.

These numbers are typically separated by periods.

Kingsley said: (Mar 13, 2021)  
When is ipv4 used and when is ipv6 used? Please explain about it.
