This blog post is dedicated to the use of VLANs (Virtual LANs) in wireless networking. VLANs are one of the most important networking technologies available today, and they are quickly becoming synonymous with high-speed networking.
While many experts will tell you that VLANs are the easiest to understand, and the most commonly used networking technology, the truth is that there are also several other benefits to using VLANs. The most important benefit is that VLANs make it easier to deploy large networks of devices, allowing for the ability to spread the load among multiple devices. Another benefit is that VLANs allow for a much more flexible deployment of wireless networks.
VLANs are great for deploying large networks of devices. When you deploy network software on your home computer, you can limit the number of clients that are allowed onto your network. This is a great benefit for smaller networks. VLANs are great for deploying wireless networks. When you deploy wireless networks, you can limit the number of wireless devices that are allowed to communicate on your network.
Another benefit of using VLANs is that they allow for more efficient management of your network. When you use VLANs, you can assign a higher bandwidth to your network and have your wireless devices “pull” traffic from a less expensive wired network and a lower-bandwidth wired network. This allows you to deploy your wireless networks more efficiently and get more reliable, more secure wireless networks.
VLANs can be used on any infrastructure, such as routers, cable modems, and wireless networks.
When you use VLANs, the network is more centralized. When you’re using VLANs, you can assign a higher bandwidth to your network and have your wireless devices pull traffic from a less costly wired network and a lower-bandwidth wired network. This allows you to deploy your wireless networks more efficiently and get more reliable, more secure wireless networks. VLANs can be used on any infrastructure, such as routers, cable modems, and wireless networks.
VLANs are used to split a network up into multiple, smaller networks. This is important, because wireless devices need a wide enough bandwidth to pull data from a wired network and a less-broad bandwidth to pull data from a wired network. It’s not uncommon for wireless networks to be limited to data transfers of 2mbit/s (or 5mbit/s). The more bandwidth you can get, the more devices you can afford to deploy.
The other benefit of using VLANs is that you can use a single IP address to access multiple VLANs, a feature that’s becoming very popular among enterprises looking to move their networks over to the cloud.
Vlan networks can be very inexpensive to use, so many people can afford to buy a pair of VLANs and use them as their home network. This is the key to finding the right one.
We’ve all been there, but we want to take a look at some of the newer VLANs.
