Abstract: In traditional Local Area Network (LAN), all devices connected on switches belong to one broadcast domain. Virtual Private Local Area Network (VLAN) technology segments a physical LAN into different groups called VALNs and allows only devices on the same VLAN to communicate with one another while restricting devices on other VLANs from sending network traffic. This technology adds security in the LAN and controls network broadcast domain. Virtual LANs (VLANs) offer a method of dividing one physical LAN into multiple broadcast domains. However, VLAN-enabled switches cannot, by themselves, forward traffic across VLAN boundaries. For inter-VLAN communication, a Layer 3 router is required. This research paper discusses the VLAN protocol and different ways and possible protocols involved in creating and implementing Inter-VLAN routing for effective distribution of network services in Ebonyi State University.
