This invention discloses an apparatus for managing a switched routed network including a network configuration learning unit operative to learn a configuration of the switched routed network, a VLAN assignment unit for generating a division of the network into virtual LANs (VLANs) based on the learned configuration of the network; and a change manager operative to detect a change in the configuration of the network and to modify the division of the network into VLANs. A method for generating a division of a switched routed network into virtual LANs based on a learned configuration of the network is also disclosed.

An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
