Now users of Windows Mobile Pocket PC and Smartphones, RIM Blackberry, Symbian and J2ME devices can connect through Jabber XCP to the Jabber Network. Jabber will be adding this month a wireless instant messaging (IM) client suite to its product portfolio. Jabber, Inc. currently has gateways available for connectivity to WAP and SMS devices.
According to the company, each of the available clients connects wirelessly to the Jabber XCP server, making them technically interoperable with other IM and presence networks. Additionally, the company reports that due to the flexibility and extensibility of the Jabber XCP platform, mobile users will ultimately have access to a wide range of real-time enterprise messaging applications across an extensive spectrum of devices and networks. Each wireless client initially offers text-based IM and presence management features, while the RIM client also offers group chat functionality, otherwise known as text conferencing.
Jabber also plans to introduce a Wireless Village gateway early in the second quarter of this year, continuing the company's commitment to interoperability. The Wireless Village (Open Mobile Alliance IMPS) protocol is supported by many wireless device manufacturers and operators worldwide. Jabber Inc.'s Wireless Village gateway will enable the Jabber XCP server to work like a Wireless Village server by allowing connections with Wireless Village-compatible clients. Additionally, in the absence of a complete Wireless Village server-to-server protocol, the gateway will enable connectivity between Wireless Village servers.
