M-Link is Isode's Instant Messaging server based on the XMPP (eXtensible Messaging and Presence) protocol. You can read more about M-Link here.

This evaluation is for customers looking to set up and run an XMPP service at their own domain, for IM communications internally or with other XMPP services. The M-Link XMPP server uses an LDAP directory to hold user information (either our own M-Vault directory, Active Directory or other LDAP directory).

A further evaluation guide is available for use of XMPP in Constrained Link Environments.
