Course Description

Subnetting is the practice of dividing a given block of addresses into subunits. This is done to meet organizational, security, and performance needs. In this course, you will learn the differences between fixed-length subnet masks and Variable-Length Subnet Masks or VLSMs. We will cover how subnet values are calculated and how to use VLSM to subnet a given address block. You’ll also learn how VLSM relates to Classless Inter-Domain Routing, better known as CIDR.
