Benefits of Virtual Local Area Network

I would recommend a VLAN. A VLAN stands for virtual local area network, which is a group of host computers/ networks/ single-user PCs or workstations (i.e. clients) that have a common set of requirements and are attached to the same domain (the server). The server provides clients with a set of shared services and helps clients to share access to the same database as well as to communicate with oen another. With their networked computers, Company LTET can communicate between its manufacturing plants in China and its assembly and distribution plants, as well as HQs and offices in the US. A VLAN is the answer for LTET in that it provides clustered architecturing of all the computers interconnected working together as a unified whole by being connected to one server. This allows for end station to be grouped together even if they are on different network switches. The cluster can have hundreds of machines linked together; they can add new systems as LTET expands; the failure of one node does not mean loss of service; and a cluster provides greater computing power at reduced cost when compared to cost and computing power of one separate machine. VLANS, too, are ideal for LTET not only in that they make transcription of information easier for them (by automating it) but also that they address the issues of information flow between the various sites whilst addressing security and network management, as well as insuring speedy access and retrieval of information all that is
