I am currently utilising VLANs in our network - for obvious reasons. Unfortunately my senior manager wishes to ditch the VLANs in favour of a single flat network - Despite from the obvious broadcast problems they appear to be moving towards this. I need support with my case and am failing - is there a defined standard RFC that will define the recommended host per subnet? I cannot find one.. Can anyone assist. This question is urgently required so that I do not lose my network so any gurus would like to comment .... with supporting documentation links if possible. Am I correct or am I going mad!!
