A VLAN represents an isolated layer two domain, identified by a name and a numeric ID (1-4094) as defined in IEEE 802.1Q. Each VLAN may be assigned to a location, tenant, and/or VLAN group.

Each VLAN must be assigned a status. The following statuses are available by default:

  • Active
  • Reserved
  • Deprecated

As with prefixes, each VLAN may also be assigned a functional role. Prefixes and VLANs share the same set of customizable roles.
