The term IPv4 denotes the Internet Protocol Version 4. This protocol version is used in data communication in different types of networks. It is a connectionless protocol which is used in the packet switched layer networks. The protocol provides a logical connection by providing the internet address to the devices. This protocol version is provided by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). Here we will provide further details of this protocol version to the users. Thus they must follow the article to get these details.
IP Address Format in 4th Internet Procol Version
The 4th protocol version of the internet is designed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). According to this authority, the 4th internet protocol version provides the 32 bits IP Address (10.0.0.138) space. This protocol provides the IP Address pool for private networks. It has five classes. Those classes are as follows.
- Class A: 8 bits network host.
- Class B: 16 bit network host.
- Class C: 24 bit network host.
- Class D:Reserved for multicast Operations.
- Class E: Reserved for future experiments.
According to this Protocol version, the IP Address is denoted as follows.
