+  <title>Assigning VLANs to Isolated Networks</title>
+  <para>&PRODUCT; provides you the ability to control VLAN assignment to Isolated
networks. You can
+    assign a VLAN ID when a network is created, just the way it's done for Shared networks.
+    Additionally, a network with VLAN ID can be excluded from the Network Garbage Collection.</para>
+  <para>The former behaviour also is supported &mdash; VLAN is randomly allocated
to a network from
+    the VNET range of the physical network when the network turns to Implemented state. The
+    released back to the VNET pool when the network shuts down as a part of the Network Garbage
+    Collection. The VLAN can be re-used either by the same network when it is implemented
again, or
+    by any other network. On each subsequent implementation of a network, a new VLAN can
+    assigned.</para>
