Powerconnect 5448 and GVRP

Looking to create Vlans on 6 Powerconnect 5448 and trunk them.  What are the benefits of using GVRP and do i need to use it?  I realize i have to create trunk links which i am familar with but i'm a bit vague on the GVRP and whether it behaves like VTP or not.  

Thanks!!

GVRP will automatically create the VLANs on the trunk ports as needed. You'll still need to put the devices into the correct VLAN using port tagging, protocol tagging or IP address tagging.

Use the GVRP enable command from both the Global-config and Interface-config modes to activate automatic VLAN creation:

(config)# gvrp enable
(config-if)# gvrp enable
