Can we create the VLAN in L2 switch?

Just a simple question, do not have much idea on switches, so just a random curiosity. I know on the L3 switches we can configure VLAN, is it also applicable to the L2 switches.

Yes VLANs run at layer 2 so they can be created on layer two switches. They only time you need a layer three switch or router for VLANs is when you want two or more VLANs to communicate with each other.

Hi,

Any managed L-2 Switch provides the functionality of VLANs. However to make the inter-VLAN communication you need either a L-3 Switch or router.
