I have a 2960 24TC-S catalyst switch with current lan lite software which only supports 64 vlans. I have to install it to a company which needs at least 255 vlans.

Is it possible for this model to be upgraded to an IOS with more vlans like lanbase or ipbase?

Thanks you.

Unfortunately the LAN-Lite 2960 cannot be upgraded to LAN-Base.

It's a limitation of the device itself.

Cisco introduced the Cisco Catalyst(r) 2960 Series Switches with LAN

Lite Software for entry-level small branch offices and wiring closets. These

three Cisco Catalyst 2960 Switches with LAN Lite Cisco IOS(r) Software simplify

the migration from nonintelligent hubs and unmanaged switches to a fully

scalable managed network. The LAN Lite Cisco IOS Software provides entry-level

security, quality of service (QoS), and availability capabilities while

lowering the network total cost of ownership.
