The Jabber function is a procedure in Ethernet networks that prevents a station from occupying the transmission medium for an unacceptably long time. The Jabber function is part of the IEEE 802.3 standard and provides an interruption mechanism with which the transceiver is interrupted in the transmission process if it sends data on the cable for longer than 30 ms in succession or if the standard defined packet length of 1518 bytes is exceeded. At the same time as the interruption, SQE (Signal Quality Error) signals are sent to the terminal device, which cause the terminal device to terminate the data transfer.
Jabber is also the name given to a malfunction in which a network component continuously transmits meaningless signals into the network.
Jabber is also the name for an early real-time-based streaming protocol. The Jabber protocol was later standardized in modified form by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) under the name Extensible Messaging and Pres ence Protocol (XMPP), an extensible messaging and presence protocol described in RFCs 3920 to 3923.
Jabber is also a chat service. Like I Seek You (ICQ) and MSN Messenger, it belongs to instant mess aging and supports chattingwith friends and acquaintances. Unlike
other chat services, it can be handled by different providers.
Jabber is an online servicewhere
you can communicate with each otherin
real time via text messages. You can determine whether a conversation partner is online or offlineand contact
them directly. As soon as a communication person joins the channel, this is shown to the conversation partner.
