Why is A Subnet Mask Needed For An IP Address

IP addresses are complicated bits of data. They are often compared to physical street addresses for a house, and that analogy works perfectly. Think of it this way. A street address for a physical house has information that says where that house is as well as which city it belongs to. In this way, IP addresses do the same thing but with much less data. Each IP address includes information that states which device that address belongs to as well as which network that address is for.

The subnet mask for an IP address states which part of the IP address is for the network and which part of the address belongs to the device. This is needed since the IP space can be segmented for various uses. For instance, a range of IPv4 addresses can be segregated so it can include more or fewer addresses in a single address space.

Because IP spaces can vary so drastically, the subnet mask is needed to say how a singular IP address is divided to differentiate the part of the IP that belongs to the network or the device it is assigned to.
