Enterprise real-time communication through Openfire !

XMPP (also known as Jabber) is the leading open standard for presence and real-time messaging. Since 2004, it’s been an approved standard of the IETF (the same organization that standardized email and World Wide Web protocols). A rich set of extensions to the protocol are maintained by the Jabber Software Foundation. Today, XMPP is used by leading companies, millions of users worldwide and is the best choice for open real-time collaboration.

Open standards are critical in order to achieve a completely federated environment where real time collaboration software works seamlessly together. This will drive the medium forward as a unified productivity tool and provide the greatest benefit to end users. The hundreds of interoperable software products that use XMPP prove the reality of this vision.
