Switching to Local-Network Channels

You work for a small- to medium-size business. As the network administrator, you are responsible for ensuring that your network operates efficiently and securely.

Several years ago, you created VLANs on your only switch for two of your departments, Accounting and Sales. As the business has grown, it has become apparent that sometimes these two departments must share company files and network resources.

You discuss this scenario with network administrators in a few branches of your company. They tell you to consider using inter-VLAN routing.

Research the concept of inter-VLAN routing.

Design a simple presentation to show your manager how you would use inter-VLAN routing to allow the Accounting and Sales departments to remain separate, but share company files and network resources.
