Cisco Drives Open Source Industry Standards

Cisco engineers have led the development of Internet Protocol (IP) networking technologies and contributed to industry open standards organizations. The company advocates open standards, since they allow customers to adopt new technologies with confidence.

Cisco technology groups commit significant engineering and marketing resources, to drive relevant open standards development. These groups help ensure broad industry adoption through involvement in key industry open standards bodies, including the IEEE, IETF, ITU, ETSI and ISO, and XMPP Standards Foundation.

Peter Saint-Andre, technical leader for Jabber Engineering in the Cisco WebEx organization, is an executive director of the XMPP Standards Foundation.
