How to redirect all traffic from a single Vlan through a bandwidth management device

We have multiple Vlans, VOIP, management Vlans, data, trunks, VTP, all the stuff, including Wireless which is what the question is based on. I need to re-direct all of the Vlan6 (wireless) traffic through a non-routing bandwidth management device (in and out ports). I am assuming will need to create a new Vlan for this device and it's 2 ports. Just not sure how this is done, but would like to be able to do this from the core and not have to create another connection-interface to the ASA5500. Anyone have an old example?

How does this device connect to the network? Layer 2? does it pass BPDUs or does it
process them?

I assume it passes them, in that case you have two vlans vlan 60 for the outisde network and 6 for the inside network. The two vlans will merge and the root bridge should be in vlan 60 so all traffic flows through this device.

The key is how does this device process layer 2 info?

I was assuming (I am going to use a BSD based ETinc device) it is layer 2, and that I would have to create another vlan and layer 3 interface on the 6509 to get in and out traffic with access-lists to only pass vlan 6 traffic through it. I might be making it too difficult.
