Cisco Jabber Web Client/WebRTC/Web App

We have multiple on-premises customers that are in air-gapped environments, and often times it is difficult to install, update software, without having to jump through hoops.

Currently Cisco Webex Teams, Webex Meetings, and Cisco Meeting Server have WebRTC/Web App’s built for them. I know there is a Web SDK for Cisco Jabber, and for me personally, I enjoy developing with SDK, API’s, etc., but in large customer environments, without a dedicated team, it is very difficult to implement, especially given that some of the SDK code is outdated and doesn’t appear to be under regular development. I also realize there are a few vendors that have made web-applications/integrations in the past, but it also appears they are not actively developing, and to my knowledge none of them are on the Approved products list for the US DoD/government customers. It would be very helpful and potentially increase adoption/usage/usability of Jabber if it had a native Web Application like Webex Teams does. This is also a marketing point of if a solution has web App availability, and would be very beneficial in a competitive landscape.

Perhaps this could be something rolled together with Jabber and Cisco Meeting Server to be more like the "Unified Experience" that Cisco is advertising with the "Unified Client" in Webex, Webex Teams, Jabber, etc.
