VLAN Virtual LAN. A set of ports that share a single Layer 2 network. Because
the ports that constitute a VLAN can be on a single network device or
multiple devices, VLANs enable you to partition a physical network into
logical networks that meet the needs of your organization. You can
divide a single device into multiple logical Layer 2 switches, with each
VLAN operating as a separate switch, or make multiple devices
members of multiple logical Layer 2 networks. By default, all Wireless
Switch (WX) ports are members of VLAN 1, which is named default.
