Network – VLAN’s

A VLAN (”Virtual LAN”) is a broadcast domain created by one or more switches.

That means that a switch separates their ports into VLAN’s to reduce the broadcast traffic.

The reasons to create VLAN’s are:

1. Separate traffic, keep PC’s in a VLAN and the network devices in a different one.
2. Group users by department, or by group.
