Virtual Local Area Networks are used to logically divide a single local area network (LAN) into different parts that function independently.

A FortiGate uses VLANs to provide different levels of access to users connecting to the same LAN.

Bruce has been working with computers, and related technology, since before the World Wide Web was a thing. He has worked in system and network administration. He has even dabbled in technical support. He has made the switch to technical writing as part of his deep, dark and dastardly plan to make the arcane machinations of IT technology more easily understood by the poor folks who use it. That, and the voices in his head told him it was good idea. Never argue with the voices in your head. People will start to stare.
