What is Subneting? Explain the advantages of using Subneting.Subneting is dividing a network into several subnets.
This is usually done for the following purposes:
a. Reducing network traffic by decreasing the number of broadcasts
b. Exceeding the limitations in a local area network
c. Enabling people to connect to the network remotely without opening the entire network
Explain the advantages of using Subneting.Advantages of using Subneting:-
a. Easier network management and trouble shooting
b. Routing table’s size is reduced which means faster network transfers
c. Solves network congestion problems:- Since the complete network is divided into smaller networks
d. Network addresses can be decentralized e.g. the administrator of the network can monitor the subnet.
