Hi Carl,

We can say that CIDR (Classless Inter-Domain Routing) and Suppernetting are both the same, and both means summarization or aggregation, its is done in large networks mainly for reducing the routing table size, better utilizing of the address space and enhancing the convergence time at failures.

HTH, please rate if it does help,
