The values that are assigned to the first byte of class A network numbers fall within the range 0–127. Consider the IPv4 address 188.8.131.52. The value 75 in the first byte indicates that the host is on a class A network. The remaining bytes, 4.10.4, establish the host address. The InterNIC assigns only the first byte of a class A number. Use of the remaining three bytes is left to the discretion of the owner of the network number. Only 127 class A networks can exist. Each one of these numbers can accommodate a maximum of 16,777,214 hosts.
