C-Tag is an abbreviation of Customer VLAN tag.

The IEEE standard 802.1ad provides for double-tagging by service providers so that they can use VLANs allocated internally together with traffic already tagged as VLANs by service provider customers.

In this double tagging, the C-Tag (customer tag) is the inner tag set by the customer. The S-Tag is the outer tag next to the MAC address.
