VLAN suggestions for Network Refresh

Last Modified: 2020-12-29
Hi - We are in the process of doing a network refresh and would like to get some ideas on how to VLAN a new segmented network design.

Here are some of the VLANs needed:
  1. Network Infrastructure, Switches, Access Points
  2. VMware hosts, iDRAC
  3. Material Traceability 
  4. Wired network
  5. Wireless network 
  6. Battery chargers for fork lifts

I was thinking maybe doing something like this:

We can keep items 1 and 2 in the same network as they will require the same secured access.  I would recommend for ease we can keep items 1 and 2 in their existing subnets and migrate everything else out into its own VLAN/subnet.  See below:
