Its maximum capacity is 500 sessions and you can upgrade in blocks of 10 (maybe it's 25)?  Anyhow, it is a known product which requires little to no work to make work.

We use both Covergence and Acme in our network, I must admit, I am very 
very happy with the Covergence software solution. We spent a long time 
working on doing this ourselves with open source solutions. Going with a 
real SBC was totally worth it.

We are not against open source, in fact we have contributed to over a 
dozzen projects. We run everything we do on open source XEN and use Gluster 
and DRBD heavily.
