I notices the standard and Enterprise have differences in terms of IAS and RRAS.

ISA limit the number of Internet Authentication allowed at a given time.  It does not mean how many user can login from internet.

RRAS limit the number of user connected through internet.   If the limit is 200, you can only have total 200 users logon at any one time via internet

Yup and yup.

As far as RRAS, you are limited to 250 with Standard and Unlimited with Enterprise.  See this:

In 2008, IAS has been replace with NPS.  With NPS, the limit is 50 for standard and unlimited for enterprise.    See this: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd744832(WS.10).aspx

Both of the above are simultaneous connection limits imposed on their respective connections.

You mentioned two different technologies.  IAS and ISA.  The ISA server is a Microsoft Firewall.  Is that what you are looking for?
