Deployment flexibility and productivity enhancements are achieved through the integration of standards-based VoIP capabilities, virtual local area networks
(VLANs), enterprise class-routing and QoS features.
A second option would be to implement virtual local area networks
(VLAN's) within the switched network.
Virtual Local Area Networks
or VLANs are another way to improve network performance while easing administration.
To administer storage networks, firms will require the ability to reach out and configure or provision network services, such as encryption and virtual local area networks
When a LAN is handling multiple devices such as cameras and digital recorders, a managed switch allows virtual local area networks
to be created using software rather than hardware.
Unlike an Ethernet hub, which bridges all network ports into a common pool, an Ethernet switch lets users divide a network into virtual local area networks
Via NDS, system administrators will be able to remotely and securely manage and configure the various functions of the switches, including IP routing, virtual local area networks
, IP multicast and traffic class priorities.
The 3Com CoreBuilder 7000 and SuperStack II switches, for example enable the district to implement enterprise-wide virtual local area networks
for more efficient segmentation of users and greater security.
additional virtual local area networks
within their cloud environment.
