    VLAN questions. Experience will help!

    Hey! I am listening and learning at work as a new project is coming down the pike. I just want an easy to understand explanation or "how to".

    If a business is getting an ip phone system and they say that a subnet will need to be created for this system or vlan. How does that work and how would one do so? I realize that a subnet would be a separate network for said devices, but am not sure as to how you begin to start such a task

In virtualized environment, VLANs can be created for example in VMware ESXi, on a virtual switch: Configuring VLANs on ESXi
