Cisco Jabber to be retired by June 2017

UQ has recently acquired a site-wide license for Zoom Conferencing. Zoom Conferencing provides UQ staff, students and alumni with access to desktop video conferencing capabilities. 

Zoom offers an enhanced feature set when compared to our existing software, Jabber. Previously, users that had not been granted specific permissions by ITS could not join Jabber video conferences. With Zoom, this limitation no longer exists.

With the acquisition of Zoom, we will be retiring the existing Jabber server in June 2017, and as of December 2016, no new Jabber accounts will be created.
