How can i set up separate vlan for iscsi backups using unmanaged switches

Hoping you can help me (and walk me through) a possible solution for each of our locations. I would like to separate the iscsi backups that are running (primarily at night) to an iscsi lun from the normal network lan traffic . I believe the best way would be to use managed switches, but if we have a few unmanaged GB switches is this possible? Can you provide an example or scenario on how to accomplish this? Do i need to set up a server or something to route traffic through since most of our switches are unmanaged at our locations? We are only backing up One Hyper-V server at each location to a synology diskstation nas. We can provide each location with a gb switch. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry for the late reply and closing of the issue. I'm going to apply all your suggestions as soon as i can budget in some unmanaged switches for each of our office's backups.
Thanks!
