I would check the Foundry Fastiron series - maybe the 4802. Everything I've read appears to indicate they support all 4096 vlans simultaneously, although you will of course want to verify this. Extreme also appear to support 4096 vlans - you'd be looking at the Summit 200 or Summit 48si for that. Even Cisco's new 3750 Metro only supports 1024 vlans - but both this and it's similarly-named predecessors are aimed as CPE; I suppose this is because they want you to fork out for 6500. W
