Thread should read "The wait is over...unless you want to make calls" In the meantime, the login page looks fantastic!
As luck would not have it, there seems to have been a technical glitch on .com preventing the posting as planned and they are working through resolution.

So a few questions....
Why must i signup for a Jabber account (@Jabber.com) for the video and how does this tie in to webex connect, do i have to make all my webex connect staff signup for a jabber account?, and will it work with PC's on their video conferencing?
As well, because I chose webex connect I don't have the option for voice, will this be connected at some point as well as connected to CME and UC5x0 systems?
Thanks in advance,
Jabber video service and WebEx Connect service are separate backends and do not 'tie in' to each other. One if for call contol and the other IM/Presence. (Not clear on your question about, "will it work on their PC's on their video conferencing?") ??
If you choose WebEx Connect service the 'voice' option you ask about is if CUCM or VCS is configured in the OrgAdmin as one of the Unified Communication options for call control (voice/video). CME is not supported with the Jabber for iPad device for call control. (see datasheet for supported versions)
However, with WebEx Connect service you do get the P2P (device - device) voice/video that is currently supported with the Connect desktop client.
Jabber for iPad has various backend deployment options...
--two for IM/Presence - WebEx Connect service or CUP
--three for call control (voice/video) - CUCM, VCS, Jabber Video service
Supported combinations for Call Control and IM/Presence:
CUCM & CUP
CUCM & Connect service
VCS & Connect service
Jabber Video service & Connect service
Can also be deployed as standalone deployment with any one of the backends listed:
WebEx Connect service
CUP (CUP does require CUCM, but CUCM does not need to be configured for Call Control)
Jabber Video service
Hope that helps.
