Key Features of Cisco Jabber
Cisco Jabber offers a rich array of collaboration capabilities, and core features are accessible from popular desktop and mobile devices via a single, user-friendly interface. Some extended features require on-premises deployments, hybrid cloud deployments, or specific endpoint equipment. Cisco continually enhances Jabber. Later versions offer powerful BYOD support and advanced security. Core features supported by current releases of Jabber include:

  • Voice and Video Calling: Integrated audio/video is available on desktops used as soft phones or on Cisco IP video phones. Jabber supports Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) for URI-based dialing, and you can call directly from your contact list. (See Progent's Cisco SIP infrastructure integration consulting.) Jabber's multiline support allows you to set up users with as many as 8 phone lines. CUCM options available for call control include mute, call forwarding, and ad hoc conferencing.
  • Instant Messaging: Jabber uses Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) to support personal and group chat as well as persistent chat rooms. XMPP services allow you to establish confederation between Jabber and Skype for Business. (See Progent's Skype for Business integration consulting.) Server-side logging and archiving of chats lets you review Jabber messages and conversations and enables auditing for regulatory compliance.
  • Presence: Jabber's Presence features can keep you and your contacts updated in real time about one another's availability. This includes other Jabber users or contacts using another XMPP-compatible client such as Skype for Business. Your availability is automatically updated when you participate in a WebEx meeting or share an application, and your presence can be shown via the free/busy status within your Outlook Calendar or Exchange Server. Outlook users can view a contact's availability and click to start a chat or make voice or video calls. You can also save Jabber chats to an Outlook folder directly from Microsoft Outlook. (See Progent's Exchange Online integration consulting.)
  • Conferencing: Jabber allows single-click escalation of chats and calls to group voice, video, and web conferencing with support for sharing documents, presentations, and desktop screens. You can take advantage of popular video standards to establish collaboration among Jabber clients and third-party telepresence endpoints and immersive video conferencing systems. (See Progent's telepresence integration consulting.)
  • Voicemail: Jabber integrates with Cisco Unity Connection to allow clients to view, play back, and erase voicemail and visual voicemail messages. (See Cisco Unity Connection integration services.
  • Desktop Sharing: For desktop screen sharing, Jabber supports Cisco WebEx share and Binary Floor Control Protocol (BFCP) share controlled by CUCM. With Windows desktops, IM-only mode allows one-to-one screen sharing.
  • File Transfer and Screen Captures: Integration with Cisco Unified Communications Manager IM and Presence Service allows Jabber clients to send and receive files and screen captures securely. You can also route files to a compliance server for audit and policy enforcement.
  • Contacts: Searchable contact sources include Windows Active Directory Domain Services, Cisco Unified Communications Manager User Data Server (UDS), OpenLDAP, Active Directory Lightweight Directory Service (AD LDS), Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM), plus local contacts stored in Microsoft Outlook, Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Android address books. For improved performance, Jabber maintains a local cache of the user's contact list.
Jabber Deployment Options
Jabber works with various components of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager platform to provide the set of collaboration services your organization needs. Jabber operates with CUCM for call and session control, with CUCM IM and Presence Service for instant messaging and presence, with Cisco Unity Connection for voice messaging and automated attendant, and with Cisco Expressway for Mobile and Remote Access for secure firewall traversal without VPN tunneling. For hosted conferencing infrastructure Jabber operates with Cisco WebEx Meeting Center, and for on-premises conferencing infrastructure Jabber works with Cisco WebEx Meetings Server.

Jabber allows a variety of deployment options to align with your collaboration requirements and IT budget, In a traditional on-premises deployment, you install, administer, and support all your required Jabber services on your local network. Modes available for on-premises deployment include:

  • Full Unified Communications: You enable IM and Presence, provision voice messaging and conferencing features, and set up user devices for audio and video
  • Instant Messaging and Presence Only You activate IM and Presence features but do not provision users with devices
  • Phone-Only You configure CUCM as each user's primary authentication service and you provision users with devices for voice and video as well as optional services like voice messaging.

Cisco Jabber architecture for a full on-premises Unified Communications deployment

By default, the user's primary authentication is to an IM and Presence server. Jabber users outside the corporate network can access Unified Communications infrastructure using Cisco's Expressway for Mobile and Remote Access for CUCM. This does not require a VPN connection. You can also set up Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client so it automatically and seamlessly creates a VPN connection to access Cisco Unified Communications application servers.

Cisco WebEx Messenger is a subscription-based XMPP cloud service that works with Cisco Jabber clients to provide functions including IM and Presence, file transfer, and desktop screen sharing. WebEx Messenger works with CUCM and WebEx Meeting Center to enable click-to-call, phone control, voice, video, voicemail, and web collaboration. You can use Cisco WebEx Messenger in a cloud or hybrid deployment.

Advanced Jabber Security
Current versions of Jabber fully support the OAuth open-standard authorization protocol. By configuring your collaboration infrastructure to use OAuth, your Jabber clients only need to authenticate, or prove their identity, once per specified use period. After an initial authentication process, clients receive an OAuth token which, until it expires, allows them to access various Jabber services like instant messaging or voicemail without requiring them to authenticate repeatedly or to share their credentials with multiple applications. OAuth offers several advantages for Jabber users. Re-authentication is only required every 60 days (by default), is not necessary after the Jabber client is restarted, and doesn't fail when the user's password is changed. Consequently, logging in is very fast after the initial authentication process. An important benefit for administrators is that OAuth allows for Expressway Mobile and Remote Access (MRA) user policy.

Unified CM 12.0 and later support OAuth with refresh tokens and OAuth authorization can work with Local User, LDAP and SAM single sign-on based authentication models. Additional Cisco Unified Communications Manager infrastructure nodes including IM&P, Unity Connection and Expressway can validate tokens issued by CUCM servers. The OAuth Server creates a set of keys for signing and encrypting tokens. These keys are distributed automatically to call control and IM&Presence nodes within CUCM clusters. Unity connection and Expressway-C servers can retrieve OAuth keys via a REST API. After a server has the set of signing and encryption keys, it can validate and decrypt access tokens presented by Jabber users.
