Subnetting Made Easy Part 2 – Variable Length Subnet Mask (VLSM)

By Russell Hughes | 1 Min Read | 12 Min Video | Technical Level: Beginner

Variable-Length Subnet Masking (VLSM) amounts to “subnetting subnets,” which means that VLSM allows network engineers to divide an IP address space into a hierarchy of subnets of different sizes. By doing this, it is possible to create subnets with very different host counts without wasting large numbers of addresses.

This video is a continuation of the Subnetting Made Easy video previously recorded by Sunset Learning Institute. In this video, Sunset Learning instructor Russell Hughes describes what is VLSM, when you should use it, and demonstrates building your VLSM.
