AFAIK Ekiga was removed from the default install because Empathy now
handles video/voice calls. You can still install Ekiga if you want it
though but try Empathy - it handles video/voice over XMPP by default,
and handles SIP if you install telepathy-sofiasip.

My company's looking at deploying an asterisk solution, and we were
recommended by the vendor to use Zoiper - http://www.zoiper.com/ -
there is a free ($$$) option which is apparently good and works on
Ubuntu. I haven't tried it yet though.
