You are the senior network architect for a large corporation. The company has offices in L.A., New York, and Miami. The company has been experiencing tremendous growth over the last year, and as a result, management has decided to hire temporary workers to fulfill the customer service duties. You must ensure that a logical design is in place that relegates access to other areas of the network and improves performance. You planned on using VLANs and firewalls to accomplish this deployment requirement. Your boss wants to see a report of your planned approach so that she can make that presentation to upper management.
In a 2-3 page document, explain the following to your boss:
•What is a VLAN?
•What is a firewall?
•How does a VLAN and firewall combination assist you in achieving the desired goal?
•What additional benefits can be achieved from implementing VLANs?
Use a diagram as an aid in explaining the deployment of the combined technologies.
