Virtual LAN (VLAN) is not something you will directly associate with Alpha and VAX systems, but in vtAlpha and vtVAX support for VLAN is embedded in the product. Now you can simply run your Alpha and VAX communication across your company VLAN infrastructure.
A VLAN carves up your physical network into multiple Virtual LANs. Each VLAN can run in parallel across the same physical infrastructure, remaining logically separated. Your OpenVMS or Tru64 software does not have to be made aware or suited to support this new technology, AVTware takes care of that for you.
For your software the network link remains a network link, regardless how it is physically organized.
And no extra software needs to be installed, just add a VLAN to your network link with the help of the vtMonitor management tool. You can now use that VLAN in your virtual Alpha or VAX configuration, easy does it.
