Although many of the principles are the same, there are differences
between running a corporate network and a public network.  You can
have the same people doing both.  In small ISPs its likely the same
people will be doing both.  A larger company will have seperate groups
because they serve different masters and have different measures of
success.  A company may not want to pay for the same levels of
reliablity and survivability for their corporate network as their
public IP network.
