Cisco ASA licensing + Anyconnect VPN simultaneous users question



I am struggling to find out the number of total users that can use anyconnect VPN.  Below is partial show version plus the group-policy. 
So we have 2500 users that are the max number, but if I have 3 simultaneous logins per user 

Does it mean if I every VPN user account is shared between three people  - I can have a total of 7500 anyconnect sessions ?

Is this achievable or not? :) How can I figure this out . 

Thanks for any feedback!

As per my understand you can have  any numbers of users, as per your license you can have concurrent of 2500 users.


In my environment we have 100 licenses so we can only have 100 concurrent users. At present each user is only allocated 1 device that can connect to the vpn so they can only have 1 active session and all sessions expire after 13 hours to help keep everything secure. The ASA can handle more concurrent sessions, however, our licensing won't allow any past the 100 active.

   Your ASA model supports max 2500 concurrent sessions, so if you need 7500 concurrent sessions, you would need either one bigger platform that supports minimum 7500 sessions, or buy 2 more additional ASA's of same model and configure VPN load-balancing.
