The same controller or compute node usually implements several Neutron networks. Network Namespaces are one of the methods to separate traffic that flows through those networks from each other. Each namespace has a routing table or a DHCP server (and perhaps other elements). This allows the creation of separate networks with identical or overlapping IP address ranges.
