Super netting

The operation of “stealing” bits from the network portion of an IP address to extend the host address space for a group of contiguous IP addresses. For super netting to work properly, the group of IP addresses must be contiguous and consist of a binary number made entirely of ones (11 or 3; 111 or 7; 1111 or 15; and so on).
