The many names of Route summarization…

Here are the many fancy names of just plane old Route Summarization:

  1. CIDR 
  2. Aggregate Addressing
  3. Supernetting

Not to be confused with VLSM. VLSM is the frugal creation of subnets and hosts in the form of an ip addresses and subnet mask  as to not waste any subnets or hosts since more maybe be needed later.
