The greatly increased importance of telecommunications services is most important. It is the key to efficiency and competitive positioning. Without sophisticated networks enterprises cannot survive. Thus, the enterprises will work very hard to obtain these new networks and to keep them operating properly. They will take advantage of network outsourcing services to do this.
The convergence of voice and data into one network brings a market shift that is not well understood by enterprise IT managers. The need for reliable voice transmission continues; at the same time managers seek to decrease network costs by merging hitherto separate voice and data networks.
The implementation of voice over IP brings further complexity to enterprise networks. Voice over IP means that networks must support quality of service (QoS), which brings added complexity to converged networks.
Network complexity is increasing to the point where many enterprises, and even carriers cannot build and optimize their own networks. They need outside help from network outsourcers.
Enterprise network outsourcing markets at $70.2 billion in 2001 are expected to grow significantly in the next five years to $154.7 billion by 2007.
