CCNA R&S IPv4: Same-Length & Variable-Length Subnetting

Video Description

In this series of videos you’ll learn about the techniques involved in taking a single IP network, and subdividing it into multiple “sub-networks” (otherwise known as subnets). In the interest of starting simple and then working towards complexity, you’ll first learn about the technique of same-length subnetting (where each subnet created results in identical subnet masks) and then proceed to variable-length subnet masking (where subnets are created with respect to the required quantity of hosts per network, irrespective of any other surrounding subnets).
