    Networks are critical to the efficiency and even the survival of enterprises, information providers and government agencies. The technology to build and operate them exists today and it will be even better in the future. The problem is that many of the organizations that need to use the technology in their networks cannot do so. They do not have sufficient staff or experience in emerging technologies to operate new networks or to make major changes to their existing networks. Thus, they need help, and if they donít get this help they will fall behind their competitors in the information race. 

    The solution for these organizations is to use outside firms to operate their networks. This need has created a very large, fast growing market that is one of the most important distribution channels in the telecommunications industry.  This report discusses the network outsourcing market and describes its operation and the competitive environment. A companion report, Network Systems Integration, describes the U.S. market for designing and building the networks of enterprises and other organizations.
