Task 1.1Use this template to record your findings:Layer 2 switches use to streamline Ethernet communication. Instead of having one large layer 2 network,VLANs are used to segment a switch -- or network of switches -- into multiple, logical layer 2 networks.Broadcast messages sent and received are contained within each smaller VLAN. Thus, if we have anetwork of 1,000 end devices and create 4 VLANs of 250 devices each, each logical network must onlyhave to deal with 250 devices of broadcast overhead, as opposed to all 1,000 if they were on the samelayer 2 network.
