What you mean by variable and static subnetting?

Updated on August 29, 2008

Static and Variable Subnetting

 

Subnetting can be classified into two.

Static Length Subnetting:

If all the subnetworks in a single network use the same subnet mask, it is called as 'Static Length' subnetting.

Variable Length Subnetting:

If the different subnetworks in a single network use different subnet masks, it is called as Variable length subnetting

Advantages of Static Length subnetting:

1)Easy to configure.

2)Native IP routing understands only Static subnetting

Advantages of Variable Length Subnetting:

1)Ip addressess are allocated depending on the number of hosts present in the subnetwork.

2)Available host ip addressess are efficiently used and not wasted
