The best standalone solution that I've seen in action for an ISP environment
is Cisco/Riverhead.  I was involved in a case where a world renowned
DNS/SpamBlockList provider was under a relentless attack that overwhelmed
the bastion network we developed for them, including our own proprietary
ddos defense solution. A top 3 global ISP redirected the traffic far
upstream through Riverhead and successfully cleansed the traffic.
Nevertheless, that was an extremely expensive undertaking, but worth it for
large enterprises.

Prolexic offers a similar solution for a fraction of the price.  It's pretty
impressive as well, and offered as an on demand service.  I believe they OEM
this to smaller ISPs as well as sell directly to upper-midsize companies.

You'll find the attack mitigation systems here

Though most Network IPS also have excellent DDOS mitigation as well, as well
as the added bonus of excellent content signatures, these days the
distinction between the categories is more blurred

Also worthy of note are QOS tools such as PacketShaper etc. 

Remember to place them far enough upstream where they can be effective.
They serve little purpose if your link from the ISP is taken out
