Technology Spotlight

XMPP is the Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol, a set of open technologies for instant messaging, presence, multi-party chat, voice and video calls, collaboration, lightweight middleware, content syndication, and generalized routing of XML data.

XMPP was originally developed in the Jabber open-source community to provide an open, secure, spam-free, decentralized alternative to the closed instant messaging services at that time.

XMPP offers several key advantages over such services in the arena of:

  • Openess
  • Standards
  • Stability
  • Decentralization
  • Security
  • Extensibility
  • Flexibility
  • Diversity
