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.

Ratings and Reviews
Until I can share my ipad, it’s useless
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).
What’s the point?
I had assumed this app would let me present to a Cisco room like the Proximity app does for Windows and Mac. All this does is mirror what were already seeing in a meeting room? What’s the point? Controlling is nice I guess but I would imagine most rooms have the control panel already. This app isn’t all the useful if it can’t also share the iOS screen to the Cisco room.
Fail to See the Value
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?
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
