     16For initial Connectivity testing, a typical nomenclature is to use a 10.X.X.0/24 net with a VLAN ID encoded into the IP address.  To save time allocating IP addresses the following range-by-subnet scheme can be used for initial connectivity and "path-finding" experiments and configurations.

     29'''Note that these IP addresses are allocated in blocks of /28 for consistency, this ''is not a subnet'', all hosts in the /24 net should be able to ping one another by default.''' For example, a host at Clemson ( should be able to ping a host at Washington (
     31This IP network (which corresponds to the VLAN itself) is meant for monitoring and testing of the connection, though host addresses within this IP network may be used in "small" experiments. Other IP networks following the same nomenclature maybe also be used on a given VLAN. Specific experiments may also designate other IP networks over time. This scheme lays the groundwork for initial connectivity only, it is expected other IP networks (as well as NON ip networks) will be devised in the future.
     33Campuses may assign other sites IPs from their range. This range-by-subnet scheme also allows for campuses to subnet the IP addresses ''not used for connectivity monitoring'' for additional traffic isolation.
