Cisco wraps up acquisition of Jabber
Cisco today announced that it has completed its purchase of Jabber Inc., a provider of presence and messaging software based in Denver.
Cisco said the closed deal will allow it to embed presence and messaging services "in the network" and provide rich aggregation capabilities to users through both on-premise and on-demand solutions, and across multiple platforms, including Cisco WebEx Connect and Cisco Unified Communications.
Cisco said the technology also enables collaboration across many different presence systems, such as Microsoft Office Communications Server, IBM Sametime, AOL AIM, Google and Yahoo.
With the close of the transaction, Jabber became part of the Cisco Collaboration Software Group (CSG). CSG is part of the Software Group, consisting of Cisco's major software businesses, including the Cisco IOS network operating system, network and service management, Unified Communications solutions, policy management and software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings.
Financial terms of the deal, which was first announced in September, weren’t disclosed.
