If you like the management interface of your Dells then they'll most
likely perform what you need in the pure "shuffle packets"-area as long as
you do IPv4 unicast.

If you want to muck around with multicast, several vlans perhaps leaking
multicast from one vlan to another, private vlan edge, QoS etc, (mostly
metro ethernet stuff, for delivering triple play services to subscribers),
then that's a whole other ballgame.
I've been feeding one of those 7 Mbps worth of multicast traffic on and off for the better part of a year without problems. Not sure if it snoops, and haven't tried anything else fancy, though.
