Bridge Group is a feature in the Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) that assigns network interfaces to a particular spanning-tree group. Bridge groups can be compatible with the IEEE 802.1 or the DEC specification. Bridge groups enable network managers to group users logically rather than by physical location. It can also be considered a broadcast domain set up within a switch. A group of devices that belong to the same VLAN, but are part of different LAN segments, are configured to communicate as if they were part of the same LAN segment.
