Can someone help me understand this:
My company will be getting a new VoIP phone system installed shortly and it is recommended we get our switches reconfigured to split Data and VoIP traffic using vlans.
That all makes sense to me, VoIP system broadcasts a lot of traffic etc.
My understanding of vlans was you use vlans to split ports on the switch.
eg: vlan 1(data) has 12 ports, vlan 2(voip) has 12 ports.
but that's 2 different networks, our users computers will be connected to the pass through port on the phone so PC to Phone to Network point.
I'm not asking how to configure a switch to do this. More so just asking for some information to help me understand what actually will be happening on my network.
