This may cause denial of service of the entire network from transmitting data beacuse other devices will perceive the network as busy. Jabber may also means sending data packet greater than the maximum 1518 bytes as specified in IEEE 802.3. To prevent this, jabber control should be added to the hardware. Jabber is also the name of an open, XML-based protocol for instant messaging and presence. Jabber-based software is deployed on thousands of servers across the Internet..
