From my understanding, for a technology to be considered connection-oriented the 2 communicating hosts must contact each other and establish that they will share information. Then they listen to each other and finally break the connection and stop listening.
Is that something that happens in VLANs?
Edit 1: Sorry, the line says "Two examples of connection-oriented technologies are MPLS.. and VLANs, which we saw in Chap. 4"
