IPv4 vs IPv6 vs Gigabit Ethernet

IPv4, IPv6, Gigabit Ethernet! Are they the same? Or how are they interrelated?


In a Nutshell:  IPv4 and IPv6 are the addresses given to the devices that are connected in and across the network for identification that use the internet protocol. Wherein, Gigabit Ethernet is itself a protocol related to physical transmission or reception of the data in the network at hardware level.

What is Internet protocol and what is its purpose?

TCP/IP: It specifies how data is exchanged over the internet by providing end-to-end communications that identify how it should be broken into packets, addressed, transmitted, routed and received at the destination.

Gigabit Ethernet: Transmission technology based on the Ethernet frame format and protocol used in local area networks (LANs), provides a data rate of 1 billion bits per second (one gigabit).
