Virtual Local Area Networks or VLANs are a great way to create separate, private networks for your business. They offer benefits like:
- Security: With a VLAN, you can create a closed network and grant access only to the people and devices that need it. This means that your data will be protected from unauthorized entry because of its encrypted format.
- Management: VLANs allow you to segment your network into smaller networks which could be assigned different priorities and bandwidth allocation. So if there is an issue in one segment, traffic can be redirected to another segment so that there is no downtime on the network.
