My boss told me that they were on a /16 network before yet they are segmented. How did they do that? Is it even possible as I imagine all of their network devices will be on a single broadcast domain? This is possbile for statically assigning IPs but how about with DHCP involved? Im really puzzled or confused. Any idea how they did that?
Thank you so much in advanced!
I am not really clear on what you are asking. A /16 network has 65534 host addresses, so even if you use smaller subnets derived from that range, you can still be all on the same broadcast segment...
