Management of address spaces for IP communication can become extremely complex for spaces of public IP addresses, that is
open internet addressing and networks operated by organisations of a certain size.

A specific difficulty occurs for  

Telecommunication network operators, who need to operate several different sub networks for their own purposes,
for organisations with hundreds of subnets,
Service providers,
Infrastructure operators and
Network access providers

All these organisations must administer pools and blocks of IP addresses for their customers.
