It would seem so according to http://www.cisco.com/public/473/43.html

Did this model have an enterprise model and a desktop model too like
the WS-C2924XL did?

Ie. the full part number WS-C2924-EN-XL supported VLAN trunking, while
the full part number WS-C2924-A-XL does not support VLAN trunking, and
you had to buy the upgrade up to the Enterprise version to get it to
do VLAN trunking. Since these switches have been EOL'd for years and
years, I doubt you could buy that license upgrade any longer.

Hi rzirzi,

Catalyst 2900 series XL switches support the following trunking methods
for transmitting VLAN traffic over 100BaseT and Gigabit Ethernet ports:

Inter-Switch Link (ISL)

IEEE 802.1Q

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/...08007eba1.html

Configuring a Trunk Port

This section describes how to use the CLI to configure an ISL or IEEE
802.1Q trunk port, how to define the VLANs that can use a port, and how
to disable a trunk port.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/...l#xtocid180492

Sincerely,

Brad Reese

WS-C2916M-XL is the only 4 MB switch that supports trunking at all,
but the table in "Important Notes" could be interpreted as indicating
that 802.1Q trunking is supported on the device only in
Standard Edition and not in Enterprise Edition (which would likely
be tighter on memory.).

The table there does imply that with your release you should be
able to do ISL trunking.
