 The cat 8300 don't seem to really offer anything over the 1001-X (or HX), or am I missing something ?
We have a 1001-X with close to 3000 sessions on it but minimal traffic (mostly backup links).
As you get to higher session counts, the biggest problem is when you get a mass re-connection event and it hammers the CPU. Using "call admission" can help out with this. I'm not sure whether the cat8300 platform would be any different in this regard (hard to find CPU specs and be able to compare for either platform).

 Maybe the newer Catalyst 8300?

With this low requirements you could think about a csr1000v (virtual gateway combined with a rackmount x86 appliance. This setup split your software and hardware dependency and help to optimize your lifecyle. Most import
 it is much easier to get x86 hardware than network appliances today.
