When setting up a system that includes both wired and wireless phones, should one put the wired and wireless phones on the same VLAN or create separate VLANS for each type of phone? What are the pros and cons of one VLAN vs. two?

VLAN reduces the broadcast domain and provides better security. If the wired users have more privilages you can put them in a different vlan. IF your network consists of both data and voice it is better to create multiple VLAN's to serve the purpose
