About tagged interfaces

You can create a VLAN and assign interfaces to the VLAN as single- or double-tagged interfaces. When you assign interfaces as
tagged interfaces
, you can associate multiple VLANs with those interfaces.
A VLAN
tag
is a unique ID number that you assign to a VLAN, to identify the VLAN to which each packet belongs. If you do not explicitly assign a tag to a VLAN, the BIG-IP® system assigns a tag automatically. The value of a VLAN tag can be between 1 and 4094. Once you or the BIG-IP system assigns a tag to a VLAN, any message sent from a host in that VLAN includes this VLAN tag as a header in the message.
If a device connected to a BIG-IP system interface is another switch, the VLAN tag that you assign to the VLAN on the BIG-IP system interface must match the VLAN tag assigned to the VLAN on the interface of the other switch.
