Tipping Point UnityOne Intrusion Prevention Systems (augh, -hate- that 
IPS jargon, it's a transparent firewall with packet inspection :-) can 
keep up with real-world traffic levels at large academic sites.  As we 
all move to 10gig networking, though...

Netscreen (now Juniper) IDP systems can keep up with most present 
levels too, very likely at a lower price.  Of course, they're not going 
to do 10gig filtering yet, either.

In my view, the higher Tipping Point price mainly buys you a much more 
mature and focused signature/detect development process than you get 
(yet?) with the somewhat newer Netscreen and other competitive 
offerings.  That may well be worth it to you if your staffing is like 
ours.
