Subnetting an IP Address

Subnetting an IP Address

Cover

The process of subnetting is both a mathematical process and a network design process. Mathematics drives how subnets are calculated, identified, and assigned. The network design and requirements of the organization drive how many subnets are needed and how many hosts an individual subnet needs to support.

This paper focuses on the process rules and helpful hints for learning to subnet an IPv4 address. It covers the following topics:

  • The need for subnets
  • The process for subnetting
  • Formulas for subnet calculation
  • Variable Length Subnet Mask (VLSM)
  • Determining the subnet, usable range of host addresses, and broadcast address for a given host
  • And more
