How does it Work?

Cisco Intelligent Proximity is an innovative feature set that lets you engage in richer collaboration experiences through your mobile devices. Once downloaded to your smartphone or tablet, the Cisco Proximity app allows automatic pairing of the mobile device with Cisco room-based video collaboration endpoints when they come within close range. Content shared on the video endpoints can then be viewed on your mobile device, optimizing the real estate of the endpoints for video participants. You will also have the flexibility to save shared content from your mobile device, such as select PowerPoint slides, as well as review previously-shared content without interrupting the presenter. In addition, Cisco Proximity allows basic call control from your mobile device, like searching the directory or typing video addresses (URIs) directly in the app and starting/ending a call. Cisco Proximity supports Cisco SX10, SX20, SX80, MX200 G2, MX300 G2, MX700 and MX800 endpoints, running Collaboration Endpoint Software 8.0 or later. See more on how to enable the endpoint functionality on Support forum: By tapping ‘Install’ you agree to install Cisco Proximity and future software updates, and you accept the license agreement and privacy statement linked below.

  • Worse Than Completely Useless

    By GT2077
    Picture this: You walk into the conference room for your big presentation, open the cover to your iPad Pro, connect with the Cisco system in the room, and use your iPad to share dynamic content controlled by your Apple Pencil. You switch apps into OneNote as your audience asks you questions and they see you writing their questions down. You are definitely going places, and have earned the respect of the room. Well, you can’t do anything like that with this app. All you can do is view the room screen on your iPad, or use it like the control panel in the room.
  • Until I can share my ipad, it’s useless

    By David_D_RI
    Proximity allows me to not mess with wires on my Mac to display my screen to the room. Apparently it works that way on Windows. So why not the same functionality on my iPad Pro? I’m surprised, because Cisco Webex has done a great job with iPad support. I’m hoping this feature is added soon, because at the moment - I have to agree with others: What’s the point of this app? It only pairs if you’re in the same room (it uses ultrasound to find Cisco systems).
  • No Off and on button

    By Aravind Dutta
    It will be great if the client have on and off button. It runs in the background
  • Less functionality than a remote control

    By I like you Sully...
    Like others have said, it’s a pretty useless app. Can’t share any content from iPad/iPhone. You can initiate, answer, and control calls on the endpoint. That’s pretty much it. Less than what can be done with a Touch10.
  • Fail to See the Value

    By Al_at_tek
    I can get a small version of the of the large projection in the same room? Proximity means I have to be very close. I can’t imagine sitting just outside the room for the “convenience” of viewing the shared visualizations on my phone. What am I missing?
  • Until I can share my iPhone, it’s useless

    By dantali0n
    You can’t actually do anything interactive with this application. It would be great being able to present from an iPhone.
  • Very Little Value Here

    By MarkWachtmann
    As the others have noted, not being able to share the mobile device screen via Proximity..........what is the point.
  • Unable to share from iPad

    By MVelie
    This app is only a viewer for what is on the screen and has no way to present content.
  • Pretty useless

    By Robalana
    This app you would expect to behave like Proximity does on Windows, etc. But it doesn’t, it is really just a viewer, not a controller. It should be labeled as such.
  • Doesn’t work

    By appke pay doesnt work
    Doesn’t work and there hasn’t been an update for 2 years
