How to configure VLAN in R27


Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) is a logical grouping of two or more nodes which are not necessarily on the same physical network segment but which share the same logical IP domain. To be specify, the purpose of VLAN is to separate layer 2 broadcast domain. Within trunk links, the tagged packet will only be send to those ports with same VLAN ID. This is usually achieved by switch or router.

Users can benefit from deployed VLAN, such as:

Security: if without VLAN, all host will be included in unique broadcast domain. Therefore, the consequence of ARP attack will affect all end devices in the organization.

Performance: The nature of network broadcast is to flood frames among the network. In certain condition, it is unnecessary to receive broadcast frame. To save bandwidth for high efficiency, it will be better to separate broadcast domain by deploy VLAN.
R27 supports VLAN to assist users while they are planning network topology. Users can define VOIP vlan according to the real situation so that the quality of voice can be ensured.
