What are the subordinate VLANs of the switch MUX VLAN

The subordinate VLANs include:

1. Separate VLAN: Subordinate separate VLAN, whose port is a separate port. Separate ports cannot communicate with each other or ports of other VLANs. They can communicate only with their own bound principal ports. Each separate VLAN must be bound to a principal VLAN.

2. Group VLAN: subordinate group VLAN, whose port is a group port. Group ports in a VLAN can communicate with each other and their own principal ports but cannot communicate with group or separate ports in other VLANs. Each group VLAN must be bound to a principal VLAN.

The MUX VLAN function is used to isolate Layer 2 traffic between ports on a VLAN. For example, on an enterprise network, employee ports and customer ports can communicate with the server ports; employee ports in the same group can communicate with each other; but customer ports cannot communicate with each other. According to features of the preceding VLANs, the enterprise can add the server ports to the principal VLAN, add employee ports to a subordinate group VLAN, and add customer ports to a subordinate separate VLAN.
