Voice over IP is becoming the first choice for many enterprises. With significant increase in productivity and enhanced mobility of the workforce that becomes possible due to the successful implementation of one such solution, the reasons for this trend are quite obvious. As a matter of fact, these are two reasons for organizations- at different levels- wanting to shift to VoIP. The other benefits of this high-end technology include consolidation of infrastructure and a decline in the day-to-day costs of operation. One could definitely say that the benefits of going the VoIP way are more than one.

However, for the successful implementation of VoIP within an organizational context, certain preconditions should be met. First and foremost, the facilitating institutions need to have certain technical skills to make the transition smooth and hassle free. The risks of transition have to be brought to a minimum. Moreover, the quality of voice has to conform to established standards. In this context, it can be said that the managed VoIP services have emerged as the new way through which the organizations and institutions are making the all important switch from traditional telecommunication systems to Voice over IP.

This is because the successful implementation of VoIP requires certain skills. And many a times, it would be very costly for the enterprises and the organizations to do it on their own steam. There are costs of implementing and operating a Voice over IP network. Special equipment and software become necessary for the transition. Moreover, a team of technically competent people and specialized facilities for network operation are required for using these networks in the most effective manner. Given all these constraints, managed VoIP services often become the most logical choice. The managed services provider offer equipment and software, technical support as well as the centers for network operations, thereby making the entire process of transition as painless as possible for the facilitating organizations.

Moreover, many of the managed service providers offer special services for monitoring of voice quality. As a matter of fact, there are specific strategies that need to be used for this purpose.

Expertise for such analysis is hard to come by. Managed VoIP services solve this problem as well and ensure that the quality of voice conforms to certain established standards. This ensures that the voice quality is no less than the quality of traditional telephone systems.

In managed switch partitioning, the organizations have to pay up "flat" bills. The amount that they would have to pay would depend on certain factors:

1.number of people that would be using the network
2.number of elements that should be managed

Thus, with managed partitioning services, an organization can bring its telecommunication costs within limits.
