Early work realized by Jeffrey Mogul and John Pastel about the practice called "subnetting" has focused on showing the importance of dividing the network into smaller networks or segments to improve the allocation of address space in IPV4 architecture using CIDR (Classless Inter-Domain Routing) [28].
Chapters discuss all aspects of TCP/IP including network access, transport and application layers, subnetting, name resolution, security, next generation IPv6 implementations, utilities, and TCP/IP as it relates to common web technologies such as email, streaming and broadcasting, and emerging cloud technologies.
One of the most important skills in Internet Protocol (IP) network design and configuration is subnetting, that is, dividing an IP network into smaller networks in a hierarchy, parts of which can be managed separately.
The CD-ROMs contain material on subnetting (practice and reference pages), memory tables, and ICND1 open-ended questions.
Subnetting and strong, standards-based security protocols isolate wireless access points.
If bandwidth or security is an issue, however, it's relatively easy to use standard Ethernet technologies such as virtual LANs (VLANs) or subnetting to segment the existing network and separate the storage and a data traffic.
This can be important when subnetting networks together.
To get the same number of devices in the various branches connected in today's world we would have to resort to "subnetting," which basically breaks down a Class C network into smaller units.
Usually, such inter-connections are made between a fairly small number of routers, so there is address space to be saved by using subnetting.
