I think a J series would be the way to go as well. Even the 4350  
claims 1Gbps+ forwarding.

To give you an idea of cost, a J4350 will list about $5k J6350 will  
list about $10.5k. The 8-port GigE PIMs list at $1800 per, 16-port  
GigE PIM (dual height) at $3000. Of course, those are list prices...
