Creating Named VLANs for Static VLAN Assignment

To configure named VLANsVirtual Local Area Network. In computer networking, a single Layer 2 network may be partitioned to create multiple distinct broadcast domains, which are mutually isolated so that packets can only pass between them through one or more routers; such a domain is referred to as a Virtual Local Area Network, Virtual LAN, or VLAN. for static VLAN assignment, complete the following steps:

  1. To access the WLANWireless Local Area Network. WLAN is a 802.11 standards-based LAN that the users access through a wireless connection. SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. configuration wizard for a new SSID profile or an existing SSID profile, see Configuring a WLAN SSID Profile in Bridge Mode or Creating a WLAN Profile in Tunnel and Mixed Mode.
  2. In the WLAN SSID configuration wizard, click the VLANs tab.
  3. Select the Bridge option in Traffic Forwarding Mode for a bridge mode network.
    In a bridge mode SSID, all the user traffic is bridged locally. All the wireless traffic is terminated locally at the AP and bridged onto the local EthernetEthernet is a network protocol for data transmission over LAN. segment.
    Select the Tunnel or Mixed option in Traffic Forwarding Mode for tunnel and mixed mode network.
  4. Select Static in Client VLAN Assignment to specify a VLAN ID.
  5. If a named VLAN is not available in the VLAN ID drop-down list, expand Show Named VLAN to view all the named VLANs mapped to the VLAN ID.
  6. Click + Add Named VLAN to add a new named VLAN.
    The Add Named VLAN window is displayed.
  7. Enter the VLAN name and VLAN ID in the VLAN Name and VLAN text boxes respectively.
  8. Click OK to save the changes.
