Zyxel/Netgear/TP-Link all have switches in the 100-200USD range that can 
do some basic stuff (filter on ethertype, some DHCPv6/RA inspection, SNMP 
polling via IPv6 etc).

I was surprised by what I found (and this was 5-8 years ago), but I never 
went all-in on testing all of this, but looking at the feature set it 
actually seemed like they tried to support BCP38/SAVI, so I imagine some 
of these switches are actually used by ISPs as ETTH equipment.

DHCPv6 Snooping..."
