The first thing to be aware of when subnetting Class C networks is that when you subnet, subnets and hosts numbered "0" and "-1" (i.
If we continue using a nonmask-based routing protocol, however, we could cure this problem by not subnetting, and instead give C and E each their own Class C network number.
By deploying a mask-based routing protocol such as OSPF, you may reduce the needed address space to 7 Class C networks (by subnetting for E and C again, as described earlier), and drive the address space utilization up to 53%.
Thus, the idea of subdividing the address space at a lower level emerged, and this is done via so-called subnetting [15].
In the hour-long webinar, Global Knowledge instructor David Smith will cover subnetting basics, including how and why to subnet, as well as the methods used to calculate subnet masks.
