A subnet mask is used to detect the IP address that is reserved for your network and the one available for use by the host. The subnet mask offers you all the information that you need to calculate the network and host portions of the address with great ease. With the subnet mask you can calculate whether the IP addresses are in a similar subnet.

The subnets are necessary for the IP network communications to carry on. The network devices use the IP addresses and a defined subnet mask to determine if the host is on a remote subnet or local subnet.

It makes it easy to identify the number of hosts capable of being included on the same subnet.
