Guess since no one else responded i can rep the Synergy platform :)

We've got the Synergy platform.  Haven't moved to another platform yet,
still have a bunch of things to consider...

a) we have yet to receive an EOL/EOS notice from BroadSoft.  We're told it
will be ~2 years but waiting for something official.

b) BroadSoft is working on an ability to migrate the base from the Synergy
platform to the BroadWorks platform so will need to see how that works out.
I think if you have SIP Trunk customers or SIP Hosted customers you'll be OK
but anyone that might be running MGCP the advance features just don't seem
to be present on the BroadWorks platform.

c) There aren't a lot of other carrier grade platforms out there...
Metaswitch, Sonus ASX, BroadSoft Broadworks are the big ones i can think of
-- anyone have any other major vendors they would recommend?
-- We are familiar with the BroadWorks platform but we're waiting for
release 16 to come out with Sol10/x86 hardware support.

On top of all that, it is extremely costly to move customers from one
platform to another so it will take several months to continue the
evaluation and if a migration is required probably a couple years past that.

When you factor in ongoing M&S and licensing costs and the need to reduce
network costs all the time... sometimes I wonder if building your own soft
switch isn't the best route...

Are you still running the Synergy platform or have you already migrated to
something new?
