As technology grows more complex and specialized, the technical demands of building and managing critical communications systems can outstrip the capabilities of the organizations that use them.

Consequently, many organizations have elected to hire experts to manage their networks so they can focus on their missions while receiving high-quality, high-reliability service that optimize their resources.

  • When should you outsource the management of your network?
  • Is this an option for certain agencies and organizations?
  • What monitoring and managed services are available?
  • What are the tradeoffs between self-management, shared-management and full external management?
