Creating a New Network

Introduction

Each Xaptum customer is alotted a single /48 domain (The first 48 bits of the domain address are set by Xaptum). From this domain, the customer is free to create up to 65,535 seperate /64 networks. This allows the customer to follow networking best-practices by creating networks as small as functionally feasible – if two devices never need to communicate, isolate them.
