Computer networks that connect devices in the local areas such as office buildings, warehouses, and campuses are often refer as Local area networks. LAN could be just one building having devices connected using the switch or a hub. WLAN is a wireless computer network that links multiple devices. Two important key components that also need to be discussed are routers and switches. A network switch is a hardware that connects devices using packet switching to receive and send data whereas a router is a network gateway that transfers data packets across the network. This article is an attempt to explain what is VLAN, how it works, and different types of VLAN and their roles to secure traffic for the internet of things.
