Hello,

As you probably know layer 2 devices work at MAC address level so the switch will be able to transport data between end devices if they are on the same ip address range and subnet, When creating a Vlan you are creating a new Virtual LAN which in turn will require a new i.p address range so the use of a layer 3 devices would need the sub interfaces creating to manage the routing of data between the two vlans.
