Cisco Vs Huawei LAB M – (Configuring VLANs)
The VLAN technology is used to divide a physical LAN into multiple logical broadcast domains, each of which is called a VLAN. Each VLAN contains a group of PCs that have the same requirements. A VLAN has the same attributes as a LAN. PCs of a VLAN can be placed on different LAN segments. If two PCs are located on one LAN segment but belong to different VLANs, they do not broadcast packets to each other. With VLAN, the broadcast traffic volume is reduced; fewer devices are required; network management is simplified; and network security is improved.
