Benefits of VLANs
Posted on 2009-05-13
I am trying to convert a currently fully switched, flat network over to a VLAN deployment with a Layer 3 HP ProCurve switch at the core. There are approximately 600 nodes on this network.
I would appreciate somebody informing me what the actual benefits of deploying VLANs, rather than simply plugging devices together in a switched fashion, would be for the network, bandwidth and any other factors you can think of.
