Different networking technologies can increase efficiency of your network setup. These technologies address different areas of network operations. However, all of them provide common benefits such as network availability, improved network performance, and ease of network administration. These layer 2 technologies are discussed in detail in subsequent chapters of this guide:
Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs)
Private VLANs or PVLANs
Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP)
Data Center Bridging (DCB)
To implement network security, see Securing the Network in Oracle Solaris 11.4.
To show a subnet, the block is divided into multiple subnets by borrowing enough bits from the host to create the required subnet. For example, host address 192.0.2.0 might have subnets 192.0.2.32/27 and 192.0.2.64/27.
