LauraWorking 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?
SimonFacebook, Google GTalk (we'll ignore hangouts for the moment), WhatsApp.
Tobiasand Android's Push service, even if it's just for the server interface
Simontrue. Didn't P1 do something for Major League Baseball too.
fippoprobably worth poking linuxwolf or hildjj if webex uses it
SimonCisco's Jabber product range.
KevSimon: I don't think that's true.
KevCisco's Jabber isn't XMPP, AFAIK
fipponah, "cisco jabber" is the old tandberg stuff
SimonThe Cisco system I'm using at $DayJob let's me use Pidgin to access the system.
KevThey sell a gateway to XMPP, I think.
KevAt least, that was the impression I got from their webpage. I don't have inside information here.
Simonsince they switched from SIP to XMPP.
KevSure? I thought Lync was through a gateway as well.
fippooh right, microsoft lync also includes an xmpp gateway (but is based on sth like sip internally)
SimonFippo - I think it's all integrated now - no more gateways needed - just a big mush of SIP and XMPP tangled up.
fipposimon: well, the gateway is no longer a separate entity/role. but it's still doing sip<->xmpp i think
SimonSo 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)
fippomattj: consider the business potential!!!
KevTo be fair, I don't know of any XMPP server that uses CAL.
fippoconcurrent users is much easier to implement ;-)
SimonLaura: 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.
Simonfippo - but not nearly as appealing for sales team. Imagine all the licenses you can sell to people who will never login!
