VLAN Environment

HI All, i have a new client with a network requirement i ma not familiar with. He has multiple floors and offices to be rented to tenants. He has a single fibre connection so there is one gateway, due to security and privacy i need to create multiple VLAN subnets so all the tenants have their own IP range by can all use the same gateway.

I also need a device that can provide DHCP to each subnet but not allow DHCP broadcast to other subnets.

What would i need to get this done.

Many Thanks

Recommended minimum configuration is

one router for connection to provider
at least one Layer 3 switch as core switch
and some number of layer 2 switches (depending of number of hosts)

all switches need to be managed :)

You could use the same address space, on cisco "port-security protected" prevents port to port access.

But I agree with Predrag, just a router, a core switch, layer 3 is fine, but does not have to be you could go all layer 2 and use the router, with sub interfaces and DHCP scopes for each sub-interface/vlan.  Then ACLs deny access to everyone else.
