I want to have an internet connection from a service provider.The bandwidth am looking for is 4-6 mbps .I would like to know can I use a cisco switch as CPE where Internet link (ethernet handoff) directly terminate ,if yes what would be the best suited series . I willl be using vpn tunnels also.

for VPN tunnels and small amount of speed your best choice is a software based router like C2821 or better that have also a VPN HW module
A c6500 would need an additional service module and it is too expensive for this job.
Hope to help
