A Virtual Interface is required for layer 3 (IP) access to access points or controllers, or to provide layer 3 service on a VLAN. The Virtual Interface defines which IP address is associated with each connected VLAN ID. A Virtual Interface is created for the default VLAN (VLAN 1) to enable remote administration. A Virtual Interface is also used to map VLANs to IP address ranges. This mapping determines the destination networks for routing.
