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

VLAN is a switching technology. It is used to group switch ports according to some common property, for example by department. It is used for security purposes and to reduce broadcasts. In virtualized environment, VLANs can be created for example in VMware ESXi, on a virtual switch: Configuring VLANs on ESXi
