There are various software libraries out there which can be used to implement highly scalable network tools (JUNG, netstat, etc.), but I presume you're looking at something which can be used directly by a data analyst. MultiNet has already been mentioned in that regard; another possibility is to use R. I've used the sna library on graphs with a few thousand nodes without any real problems, though some functions obviously scale better than others. Both can be obtained from http://cran.r-project.org/.
