With the expansion of Internet, the current protocol address space (IPv4) is faced with a shortage and the new generation Internet (IPv6) is raised in order to solve this problem. Also with increasing interest of users in real-time and multimedia applications, the Internet and how to implement these applications to improve the quality of service (QoS) has become a significant challenge. In this paper, a network with both IPv4 and IPv6 protocols is simulated by using OPNET Modeler and implementation of QoS is tested on it. Packet loss, end-to-end delay and jitter were evaluated as network performance metrics. The results showed that satisfying the needs of multimedia applications on IPv6 are slightly weaker than IPv4, but the benefits have evolved more and more and the difference is negligible. Also according to the methods used in terms of this study, the combination of DiffServ and MPLS QoS implementation is the best option for both Internet Protocol versions
