[VoiceOps] Recommendations for high-cps SS7 OC-X gear?

Just curious: Is there a reason to avoid Metaswitch?
My main experience is in Metaswitch and Sonus, but in Metaswitch it was
limited to the 2510 and 3510 gateways and the accompanying servers up to
7.4 software and none of the newer blade platforms. At the time I would
have said that Metaswitch would have worked quite well for what is being
asked, especially if wanting to split across many smaller gateways and
geographically distributed. Is there something with the new hardware
and/or software I don't know about quality-wise?
Sonus killed off the GSX4000 which would have lent better to spreading
around a bunch of smaller boxes. They still have the GSX9000 which goes
up to single OC-3 cards (so you'd have to have a couple to split an
OC-48 still), but their main push seems to be the SBC5210 and SBC7000
which are IP only, no TDM. But spread across gateways the call
processing can easily do the 500 CPS.
