What is VLAN

Encyclopedia of Networked and Virtual Organizations
Virtual Local Area Network (Virtual LAN). Applies to a set of network nodes that behave as if they are connected to the same wire even though they may actually be physically located on different segments of a LAN. VLANs are based on IEEE 802.1Q. They are configured through software. Each VLAN has its own ID. Active equipment supporting VLANs is required.

A communications channel has an important dependence for the channel capacity (C, in bps) to channel bandwidth (W, in Hz) ratio; this is capacity per unit bandwidth on signal to noise ratio (S/N, power of the signal over power of noise). Shannon’s formula gives an upper limit for this dependence (Shannon & Weaver, 1949), C/W=log2 (1+S/N), which represents channel efficiency. Phase lock loops for waves and data symbols in the presence of noise have been given (Reis, Rocha, Gameira, & Carvalho, 2005).

The virtual LAN is a logical segregation of a physical LAN into many different logical LANs. A computer connected to one Virtual LAN cannot communicate directly with a computer connected to a different virtual LAN, even if they are both connected to the same physical LAN.
