This memo documents a DHCPv4 option that currently exists and was
previously privately defined for the operation and usage of the Cisco
Systems' Subnet Allocation Option for DHCPv4.  The option is passed
between the DHCPv4 Client and the DHCPv4 Server to request dynamic
allocation of a subnet, give specifications of the subnet(s)
allocated, and report usage statistics.  This memo documents the
current usage of the option in agreement with RFC 3942, which
declares that any preexisting usages of option numbers in the range
128-223 should be documented and that the working group will try to
officially assign those numbers to those options.  This document is 
not an Internet Standards Track specification; it is published for 
informational purposes.

This document is a product of the Dynamic Host Configuration Working Group of the IETF.
