Tier-0 and tier-1 gateways can have a span of one or more locations.
The span of a tier-1 gateway must be equal to, or a subset of, the span of the tier-0 gateway it is attached to.
A segment has the same span as the tier-0 or tier-1 gateway it is attached to. Isolated segments are not realized until they are connected to a gateway.
