Be more productive from anywhere on any device with Cisco Jabber, a new unified communications application. Cisco Jabber provides a single interface across presence, instant messaging (IM), voice, video, voice messaging, desktop sharing, and conferencing.

Take advantage of the robust aggregation, federation, and policy controls built into the presence and messaging functions of Jabber Extensible Communications Platform (Jabber XCP), Cisco Unified Presence, Cisco Unified Personal Communicator, and Cisco WebEx Connect IM.  Each of these services embeds Jabber technology to provide a highly scalable architecture that supports the aggregation of presence information across different devices, users, and applications.

Communicate securely with anyone, anywhere with an IM system that uses the Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP), including Microsoft Office Communications Server, IBM Sametime, AOL AIM, and Google.


XMPP is a set of open XML technologies for real-time online communication, such as instant messaging, presence, multiparty chat, voice and video calls, and online collaboration. The core technology behind XMPP was refined in the Jabber open-source community in 2000 and formalized by the IETF in 2002 and 2003.
