Re: To vlan or not to vlan, that's the question

Hmmm VLANs, why bother? I think it depends if you want to segment your
network logically. Depending on the features of the switch you buy,
will determine the security options you have to choose from, although
you're not going to get higher than Layer 4 on the switch for security.
But if your internal network is trusted then why would you firewall the
heck out it; these are business-to-business decisions, and are for
another discussion at another time. Let's carry on, a switch like
Extreme Networks will give you non-blocking, wire speed switching, but
if you want all your traffic to go slow path then pick a router. A
router in the middle will force all traffic to go slow path for routing
decisions between networks; for security reasons this may make sense
but for performance reasons you might want to use a vlan setup with
Access Control List to secure unwanted traffic. Whatever setup you
choose let the backbone have either a Cisco, Extreme, or Juniper Layer
