Write 5 pages thesis on the topic classful ip addressing. The company has two branches located in different cities. The headquarters is located in San Francisco while the branches are located in Huston and Denver. The headquarters is connected to the other locations through WAN links. The headquarters has 20 hosts. Denver has two LAN networks that are Administration and Salesforce. Both the Administration and Salesforce LAN have 10 hosts. Huston also has two LAN networks, namely Administration and Sakes force. Both the LANs have 10 hosts.
The task would require three routers each having a private IP address. Each router IP address would be subnetted into the required number of IP addresses according to the number of available hosts. Each of the departments would be allocated a specific range of the subnetted IP address and in turn, the hosts would be assigned specific IP addresses either dynamically or statically.
It’s through assigning different IP addresses to multiple hosts on different local area networks that we achieved to form a wide area network for the ABC Company. Through the IP addressing scheme, all the locations routers will be assigned IP addresses that will allow the two location LANs to be connected with the headquarters using appropriate and effective method either YMAX or cable laying. The hosts at each location will be assigned IP addresses either dynamically or statically to complete the WAN connection. Classful addressing being an addressing architecture that divides the address space in IPv4 into five addresses, but we use class C coded in 8 bits. We use this class since we have a limited scope in default configuration parameters of our network software and hardware components.
What is an IP Address (Internet Protocol Address), is an exclusive number of all information technology devices (printers, routers, modems, et al) use, which identifies and allows them the ability to communicate with each other on a computer network.
