I'm considering 3 vlan's for my environment to reduce broadcast traffic and improve network performance. As an engineering firm, the workstations are pulling cad drawings and working live across the network. There are times we experience latency.
There are about 55 workstations, 16 servers, and voip on 1 broadcast domain. My thought is to create 3 vlan's: 1 for workstations, 1 for servers, and 1 for voip. My thought is to purchase 2 - layer 3 managed switches. I'm currently running with 4 Netgear GS748T's for data and 2 Avaya 4550 PWR's for voip.
I'm not well rehearsed with vlan's but am quickly relearning.
