  10. Laura Working on the website text, who can help by giving me some examples of who is currently using XMPP? Ideally, I want recognisable users - this is a little snapshot on the homepage so it's marketing. Who uses XMPP that people will recognise?
  11. Simon Facebook, Google GTalk (we'll ignore hangouts for the moment), WhatsApp.
  12. Tobias and Android's Push service, even if it's just for the server interface
  13. Zash and Apples
  14. Simon true. Didn't P1 do something for Major League Baseball too.
  15. fippo probably worth poking linuxwolf or hildjj if webex uses it
  16. Simon Cisco's Jabber product range.
  17. Kev Simon: I don't think that's true.
  18. Kev Cisco's Jabber isn't XMPP, AFAIK
  19. fippo nah, "cisco jabber" is the old tandberg stuff
  20. fippo http://www.cisco.com/web/about/ac49/ac0/ac1/ac258/JabberInc.html
  21. Simon The Cisco system I'm using at $DayJob let's me use Pidgin to access the system.
  22. Kev They sell a gateway to XMPP, I think.
  23. Simon Microsoft Lync?
  24. Kev At least, that was the impression I got from their webpage. I don't have inside information here.
  25. Simon since they switched from SIP to XMPP.
  26. Kev Sure? I thought Lync was through a gateway as well.
  27. fippo oh right, microsoft lync also includes an xmpp gateway (but is based on sth like sip internally)
  28. Simon Fippo - I think it's all integrated now - no more gateways needed - just a big mush of SIP and XMPP tangled up.
  29. fippo simon: well, the gateway is no longer a separate entity/role. but it's still doing sip<->xmpp i think
  30. Simon So pleased I don't have to deal with the hassle of buying "Client Access Licenses" to use prosody (http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/lync/en-US/7a959a90-b999-4e75-b217-fd412184525f/lync-2013-xmpp)
  31. fippo mattj: consider the business potential!!!
  32. Kev To be fair, I don't know of any XMPP server that uses CAL.
  33. fippo concurrent users is much easier to implement ;-)
  34. Simon Laura: might be worth mentioning Isode's use of XMPP for military messaging too. That way we have a range of customer, business and govt + millitary uses of XMPP covered.
  35. Simon fippo - but not nearly as appealing for sales team. Imagine all the licenses you can sell to people who will never login!
  36. Laura Thanks! Will start my list now
