Can someone explain to me how to summarize an IPv6 network. Because with the book I am reading, I can't understand how the author came up with this.
Does it still have to deal with bits for summarization?
Let's break it down:
0x10 = 0000000000010000
0x11 = 0000000000010001
0x12 = 0000000000010010
0x13 = 0000000000010011
The common bits are the first 14 bits, correct ?
Every colon you have 16 bits and the summarized portion is located in after the third colon, correct ?
So you have 16 x 3 = 48
Then you add 14 bits from the fourth column (the common bits we discussed above) and you have 62.
