A prospect client asked if it was possible with the Cisco Jabber for Android/iPhone/Nokia client, to establish seamlessly VPN or secure connect on demand connection through WiFi or mobile network when a user makes a decision to place the call through the Jabber application?
The idea is, because the Jabber mobile client would be used by executive users, they won't bother making sure if the jabber client is running, connected...
The mobile phone should be pre-configured for specific Wi-Fi and mobile networks, and the client should be idling in the background waiting for the user to select a IP phone call, and when this happens, it should automatically connect to the predefined network which is available in the moment (preferably WiFi first and 3G), and after the call ends, it should get back in to idling mode and disconnect the connection!
From what I have read and understand til now, the Jabber has the following capability:
Q. How does Cisco Jabber for Android connect to my corporate network when I’m on or off site?
A. While you’re on site, Cisco Jabber for Android connects to your corporate Wi-Fi network directly.
While you’re off site, Cisco Jabber for Android can use secure connect to automatically connect to your corporate network using any other Wi-Fi or mobile data network.
Requirements for VPN On Demand
- In order for Cisco Jabber to launch VPN automatically when needed, the iPhone must be set up for certificate-based IPsec authentication for VPN on-demand access. The iPhone must be able to access the corporate network, servers, and telephony endpoints using VPN.
But this doesn't explain mine question and the whole process....
Thank you very much for any input.
