There are some basic requirements for the Cisco jabber to work. You need to have servers in the backend which would allow for the Jabber client on the PC to register to. Here are the basic requirements:
There are several backend options for both on prem and Cloud based:
"Basic" for the backends...
Presence and IM:
Cisco WebEx Connect Cloud backend (Cloud bases)
CUP (CUP and CUCM server)
Rich Call Control and video:
Unified Communications Manager (CUCM server)
Cisco Video Communication Server (VCS Server, TMS Server)
Cisco Jabber Video Service (Cloud based)
Hence in order for you to use Cisco Jabber, you would require the basic servers. Hope this answers your question.
You need additional devices to make the video calls using Cisco Jabber. Cisco jabber is soft client which runs on PC and relys on underlying infrastructure for that.
Cisco jabber requires provisoning to make video call working, and depending on scenario the deployment varies. Basically provisioning requires components as pointed earlier by Vivek and Mubashshir
- Cisco Telepresence managment suite (TMS server)
- Cisco video communication server (Cisco VCS)
However i am not fully agree with them and there is another option available i.e. called as Cisco VCS starter pack, which is built for small enterprise customer who doesn't have large depolyment and for small no. of users you can buy that.
So if I buy a "Cisco VCS starter pack", and add that to my system above, you are saying I can have Jabber telepresence between PCs and IP Phone 9900 series without CUCM server right? Could you please confirm this for me?
Also the other question that I have in my mind is that, I thought Cisco is offering cloud based Jabber Telepresence where I don't need any of the device but cloud based licenses. Is this true? (If yes, I think buying the license only is much cheaper solution then buying all those devices (See here http://www.cisco.com/web/telepresence/smb/get-started.html )
VCS starter pack is a limited edition for users and you don't have much flexibility. although VCS starter pack is ususally deployed in DMZ so that users can use calling in and out from organization plus it supports provisioning and phonebook for some endpoints.
I fyou have starter pack and configure a SIP trunk to your existing CUCM and then you can call using cisco jabber/movi to call to your CUCM 9971 phone.
Regarding free jabber account i created one without any license. So not sure which license you were talking of. Its a free jabber video telepresence service hosted in a cloud enviornment.
You can go to below site and create a free account for video calls. any one can reach you using your jabber video URI.

endpoints and other SIP related issues. Even though these traces are in
clear text, these texts can be gibberish unless you understand fully
what they mean. This document attempts to br...
