One thing I know for shure: Lucent is not using it. In the past I spent
some efforts to introduce to my colleagues the possibility of using Erlang.
Some of them did like this option indeed, however the management did not
want it. One of the arguments was that our problems were not in the area
of the used language (C and C++). I never fully understood this: Erlang
claims to have 5 times smaller code then C, so it should contain 5 times 
less bugs ... but probably I'm naive.
