Switch: VLANs

Spanning Tree
Seminar 5
Virtual networks – VLANs
Traffic separation on Data link layer (L2)
Software separation of broadcast domains
Ethernet frames are not transmitted between VLANs
Seeral lo!ically separated networks
"nterconnectin! more switches by Tr#nk ports
There is the information added to the frame header tellin!
which VLAN the frame belon!s to$ (problem with ma%$ si&e of
the frame)
VLAN topology analysis
2 VLANs connected to the switch S'( with
no VLAN confi!#ration

VLANs are #seless here) beca#se the frames will be mi%ed
on switch S'( anyway
