A VLAN is a group of ports designated by the switch as belonging to the same
broadcast domain. (That is, all ports carrying traffic for a particular subnet
address would normally belong to the same VLAN.)
N o t e
This chapter describes static VLANs, which are VLANs you manually config­
ure with a name, VLAN ID (VID), and port assignments. (For information on
dynamic VLANs, see chapter 3, "GVRP".)
Using a VLAN, you can group users by logical function instead of physical
location. This helps to control bandwidth usage by allowing you to group high-
bandwidth users on low-traffic segments and to organize users from different
LAN segments according to their need for common resources.
By default, 802.1Q VLAN support is enabled for eight VLANS. The table below
shows the maximum number of VLANs you can configure on each switch

(802.1Q compatibility enables you to assign each switch port to multiple
VLANs, if needed, and the port-based nature of the configuration allows
interoperation with older switches that require a separate port for each
