Network segmentation is the process of breaking up a single computer network into different subnets. Each subnet is referred to as a network layer. This has implications on the network's performance, safety and functionality.
Network segmentation has various advantages, some of which are:
Reduction of Network congestion. Local traffic can be reduced on each subnet because there would be fewer hoists per subnet. This goes a long way in improving performance.
Overall improvement in network performance. This is achieved in several ways. One of which is increasing the bandwidth available to each user. Each segment has the full bandwidth available to it; therefore, network segmentation has a multiplier ...
