Vlan Tag

Read from Blogger (mili liew) that you don't really have to use 2wire 5012NV for your Singtel NGBN.

There is a blog that details how you can use your own switch to connect to the Optical hub.

The suggested switch used is a "managed switch that support vlan tagging". Vlan tagging is actually a protocol IEEE 802.1Q. The switch must be able to support this tagging.

Tag used as belows.

vlan 10 - Internet
vlan 20 - MIO TV
vlan 30 - VOIP
vlan 40 - Management

I don't quite know what vlan 40 is used for.
