those are marketing numbers, we are currently terminating around 20k L2TP sessions on a Cisco 10k with around 1 Gbit/s of trafic (one way, multiply by 2 to have in+out) and the RP is around 70% CPU usage... we won't scale to 60k sessions.

There is something wrong but it has not been solved by Cisco yet... they are working on it.
