Benefits of using VLANs... VLAN itself is a benefit ! When segmenting our Network we can set up different mini-networks for each department in our company. We are setting up different VLANs with different accesses, rules, restrictions, etc... As well as maintenance is actually easier when you are working on individual VLANs or group of users rather than the whole network itself. You can set up different VLANs for each department of your company, like Sales, Engineering, Helpdesk, Marketing... even a Guest VLAN so if you have visitors, they can connect to your Network without compromising it. As well as for the company's departments... they don't need to see what is Marketing doing with their own private stuff as well as all the accesses that IT has within the company. That is what segmenting your Network into different VLANs is.
