Binary is all zeros and ones, as I’m sure you’re aware of it. A subnet mask converted into binary is no different. However, all zeroes are placed on the right while all ones are placed on the left.

A system called Classless Inter-Domain Routing, or CIDR, was developed as an alternative to traditional subnetting. The idea is that you can add a specification in the IP address itself as to the number of significant bits that make up the routing or networking portion.

For example, we could express the idea that the IP address 117.206.203.198 is associated with the netmask 255.254.0.0 by using the CIDR notation of 117.206.203.198/15 This means that the first 15 bits of the IP address given are considered significant for the network routing.
IP CLASSES:

• 1-127-class A
• 128-191-class B
• 192-223-class C
• 224-239-class D
• 240-254-class E
Conclusion:
Hopefully by now, you should have a working understanding of some of the networking implications of the IP protocol. While dealing with this type of networking is not always intuitive, and may be difficult to work with at times, it is important to understand what is going on in order to configure your software and components correctly. So here is the IP CALCULATOR that will help you understand some of these concepts and get the correct addresses and ranges that you need by typing in certain information. Here, you can find a subnet calculator which will provide you a CIDR range finder, and an IP address to binary octets converter, IP class finder, network address, broadcast address, number of hosts etc. You can easily get the results from here. Use this tool to help you when making networking decisions.
