Many kinds.  Wi-Fi is generally handled as one flat subnet on an entire campus/site with broadcast/multicast suppression so that you don't have roaming problems which would happen if you need to roam to a new subnet.


Actually, I've been using pooled /20 subnets for years, which was considered best practice for campus networks at the time it was implemented. Roaming to a new subnet never happens.


This made me go look up the current best practices though, and it appears that the pooled model is being deprecated in favour of bigger subnets. Good to know.
