Cisco-wise you'll find nothing that can push bandwidth. The cheapest
option you have would probably be a WS-3560, but you'll need an
"advanced ip services" image which does not come for free.

You will be able to push a lot of packets through that box, and it
can do v4 and v6 routing. I have not tried v6 BGP yet on that one;
I know it works on 3750s (since Jan 2011), and my guess is that
Cisco would have implemented the feature on the 3560s too.
