Hello,

I am designing hospital's VLAN.   I have around 800 users and 18000 patients. i want to represent my VLAN solution diagramatically and I do not know how to do it.  I have a beginner's understanding of VLAN.  Can anybody give a link or document for the same?  I want to draw diagrams using Visio.
2. Also,  I need to know after designing this I want to represent the whole hospital network on the network diagram, how do I do this?

Thanks

1. Here's a link that pretty much describe vlan :
http://www.tech-faq.com/vlan.shtml.
You can draw your vlan diagram by using visio. The trick is just by using a cloud or other picture to describe your 800 user without drawing each one of them.

For Cisco VLAN, also check petri website for good explanation on how to set it up :
http://www.petri.co.il/csc_setup_a_vlan_on_a_cisco_switch.htm

2. Draw them on separate pages. After you draw your vlan page, make them as part of the whole network on the other page.

hope it helps a bit

I find the best method to have two diagrams, one showing the physical switch topology and then on each link list the VLANs that are trunked, and the other using the cloud network showing the VLAN addressing and a description of each VLAN.

Visio is one good tool, Cisco has published Visio icon's that you can use, available at:
