Marcus (et al),
    As previously discussed, I would like to start a dialog with you to formulate a new IFAS IP address plan. Basically, I would like to move all IFAS on-campus broadcast domains to an appropriately sized /24 or /23 (254 or 510 node subnet) private IP and a small /28 (14 node subnet) public IP subnet. For route summarization purposes, I would like to request that all private and public numbers be consecutive. The details of my proposed plan is as follows:

     With the exception of (Building 120 IFAS Computer Room) and (IFAS VPN server), IFAS will by Dec 31st
give back to CNS all currently assigned on-campus public IP networks (11 x /24 and 1 x /25 networks). In exchange for 3 consecutively numbered blocks of /24 networks that will be further sub-divided into /28 networks and used to replace the current IFAS public IP space. Also, IFAS would like to request that the (or simular) network be assigned as the private IP space to renumber the current ~40+ broadcast domains that are on campus.

    If you don't have consecutively numbered blocks of /24 networks available, IFAS could use the and networks. I would then request for or network to be broken up for deployment in the "IFAS Farm Area" to free the currently used .135.0/24 and .134.0/24 networks for re-deployment.
    Most of IFAS' broadcast domains are pretty well defined. However, some like the "Farm Area" (subnet 134/135) are unique in that it has a large node count spanning multiple buildings and departments on a single broadcast domain. As an example of this, I've attached a .jpg that shows the "Farm Area" broken up into 11 separate broadcast domains. However, this is more of a discussion topic for Dan Miller and his folks.
