besides Alex' suggestion to look at AWS PPS limits, few things to take
in consideration in such case:

  - if CPU usage is low, then if you use DNS for routing, be sure that
DNS server is very responsive
  - if you do auth with database, be sure that database is very responsive
  - if you print extensive log messages, be sure syslog is configured
  - check the received queue on sip port with netstat, if it is high
value, then kamailio is stuck in some operations (like those above) and
doesn't read as fast as the end point transmits
  - if sipp runs on a low capacity system, I noticed that it cannot
handle the responses at high throughput even when they are sent to it
and it actually thinks it hasn't received them and do retransmissions
