1500 clients at the same time is a lot and
"No encryption necessary" sounds like a contradiction.

OpenVPN should be as good as any vpn solution...  and since it works for you
benchmark it and  plan on multiple servers as traffic performance
measures indicate.

It is possible that dedicated Cisco hardware solutions will scale
better.  At a minimum they can set a cost base line to validate the
value of your Linux solution.

Management of clients needs to be expanded.

Point-to-point tunneling protocol does not make sense
based on your email address.
