Cisco Jabber IM - Data Guzzler

I got the limits of my data plan in the last 2-3 months and found that Jabber IM is the reason .

Jabber has consumed 90 MB whereas Whatsapp consumed 2 MB for the same time period. I use the latter for private messaging, I’d estimate at about similar frequency/intensity as Jabber for business. Actually Jabber is by far the biggest mobile data consumer on my IPhone. Even Mail and Safari consumed only 5 and 6 MB in the same period. We use codec G711 in our setup.

It appears Jabber consumes quite a bit of data in the background which Whatsapp does not. Not sure if this is the keepalive data with the call server . This will become a serious concern as it will deter us from promoting its usage in mobiles.

Appreciate any inputs to reduce the data consumption and foster more usage with the road warriors.

Thanks and regards - Abanindra
