The big vendors in the market used to be Tekelec and DSC. DSC was
eaten by Alcatel, if I remember right -- but Tekelec had just rolled
out new products that were more or less wiping the floor with everyone
else, integrating enough SCP functionality into their Eagle STP to do
local number portability and a range of other high-volume

Of course there were other platforms out there like the Lucent one,
mostly deployed at AT&T, and Nortel's offering, about which I know
very little -- and there were actually a few networks out there using
Tekelec's MGTS SS7 test appliance as an STP, which is a little crazy
but I've seen it work.

That was almost 10 years ago, about when I got out of the SS7
business. I am not sure what's happened since then (I'd assume
further consolidation, as well as probably some business siphoned off
by SS7 over IP type boxes) and in fact I'd be curious to know.
