I would do it with one x86-64 server running xen or KVM on a recent Linux distribution, and then various VMs for services like recursive DNS resolver, dhcp daemon, etc.
1GbE link with vlan trunk and tagged traffic to the CCR would be sufficient. You do plan on giving the residential customers a second off-site recursive resolver to query, one that's under your control somewhere else on your network?
