What is Jabber

Jabber is a soft-phone that will allow you to answer your desk video phone number on other devices. Jabber allows internal video calls to take place between video phones, desktop computers, laptops and mobile devices (phones and tablets). Using Jabber you will be able to see if colleagues are available, and collaborate with them using your preferred method.

You do not need VPN to use Jabber when working remotely.

To use Jabber you will need a Jabber profile which links your user name and password to your Griffith phone extension number.

Your username when logging in will be your sNumber@griffith.edu.au for example s1234567@griffith.edu.au
