What do you mean by "in IEEE"? I don't think the IEEE ever defined a format for integer numbers; IEEE-754 covers floating-point numbers only.
For integers represented in 2's complement format (the format commonly used today), the maximum values are
-2^31 to 2^32-1 (for 32 bit numbers)
-2^63 to 2^63-1 (for 64 bit numbers)
