Windows and OSX support for Proximity

Edit, Dec 2015: Proximity for Windows and Mac is now available from

Is there an install for Windows and OSX support for Proximity.

I have upgraded all of my endpoints to TC7.1.2. (SX, C Series, EX) and Proximity is working great however most of my users bring laptops to meetings not iOS devices.

Any timeframe ?

From what I've observed

From what I've observed Windows and MAC proximity clients are only for Cisco internal testing, no public testing or release is available and most likey won't be until it's fully released along side the CE8 endpoint software.

I know on the Proximity webpage they mention the first half of 2015, but as we all know, as development and testing progresses, timeframes for a release can very well change than what was planned.

You should not need the Proximity app.  Just go to your web browser and type in the ip address. 

then go into call control....

This is assuming that you do

This is assuming that you do not lock down your codec with a username and password, correct? I do not think any enterprise would recommend this as a solution to their customers. Having a Mac and Windows APP is a great idea.

@dshumake; nice try ;)

@dshumake; nice try ;) (thanks for being forgiving with us)

@ablaisdell; agree!


@fcosgrove; we are currently starting a limited trial for Win and Mac clients (EFT, part of TC 7.3). The main feature for the laptop client is sharing FROM your laptop to the video endpoint, so you can skip the cable, dongles etc in the room.

We do have plans for supporting call control and content receive to the laptop as well, but that's later. 

The first PC & Mac version has target for first half 2015, but is subject to change (as in: not yet committed).

Hi Henrik,Any updates on

Hi Henrik,

Any updates on Cisco Proximity for Windows and Mac, Alpha or Beta ready for testing?


It is very confusing that Cisco already boast about how this feature is already available, even though we know it is not.

Hi ablaisdell, Cisco

Hi ablaisdell,

 Cisco Proximity for content sharing is supported by mobile devices and wireless sharing from laptops (Macs and PCs) ... it requires Collaboration Endpoint Software 8.0 or later.


 Check this link.


Hope this helps.
