Note that it is possible to achieve similar effect as presented in this
section without the use of shared networks. If the subnets are placed in
the global subnets scope, rather than in the shared network, the server
will still use classification rules to pick the right subnet for a given
class of devices. The major benefit of placing subnets within the
shared network is that common parameters for the logically grouped
subnets can be specified once, in the shared network scope, e.g.
"interface" or "relay" parameter. All subnets belonging to this shared
network will inherit those parameters.
