Yeah - the network bit isn't _that_ hard.  It's making all the bits that 
make a complete system work that's hard.

(eg.  Mail, Internal Radius systems/CRM Systems, billing systems, LI, 
Webhosting, DNS, load balancing etc.   All of these on a large ISP scale 
are much harder than just a single box linux machine).

Heck, reverse DNS for IPv6 space is it's own exciting challenge.
