PPPoE Server

Cisco ASR1k can support up to 64K PPPoE depending on the model/cards. Juniper MX and Nokia 7750 can scale up to a couple of hundred thousands depending on the model. The thing to bear in mind is the ASR1000 is a CPU based router, this means it is very flexible (NAT/L2TP etc can just turn on without extra cards) but throughput is limited to your processor capacity and what you turn on. The Juniper MX and Nokia 7750 are more hardware based routers that can massively scale but you need to work closely with the vendor to ensure you have appropriate cards for your intended application. Personally I have used all of these solutions and I would stray towards the Juniper. This being said the Nokia is also a magnificent box albeit a bit less user friendly IMHO.

I'll second that. Juniper MX works well for us.  We have one router terminating 10,000 PPPoE and 3,500 L2TP and it handles the load fine.
