WebEx provides secure online video and audio conferencing with internal and external participants. It allows you to set up scheduled conferences where participants can be invited via email and join by following a web link. WebEx allows you to collaborate with up to 100 users in a single meeting; share presentations, applications or your desktop; dial in to the conference from a phone, or at a computer via a USB headset; and record meetings for future reference.


Jabber is an instant messaging and presence application for communication with colleagues. Features include instant messaging; presence (to show your availability); use as a phone when a USB headset is connected; video chat (when both participants have web cams); and voicemail.
