Cheapest 1U Switch With Private VLANs?

Posts: n/a
What is the cheapest Cisco switch that supports private VLANs, with one port
used to uplink to a router or firewall port, and the remaining ports
configured as completely private? I'm not sure how Cisco defines PVLAN,
but the key attribute I must have for this product is that all data must
pass from a private port to the uplink port, with no possibility for
broadcast, arp, or layer 3 traffic to travel between private ports. This
must be true even if the host attached to a private VLAN port can
impersonate a different MAC address other than its own, and must be true
even if the host knows the target MAC address of a host on a different VLAN

Since I will be using one of these switches for each segment attached to a
firewall, and the number of hosts are trivially small, I have no concerns
about density or about passing VLAN information across multiple switches.

What are my product options? I would like to identify both a fast ethernet
and a gigabit switch.
