MX300 G2 - Intelligent Proximity

Hi everyone,

We are awaiting delivery of some new MX300 G2 units.  Whilst taking a look at this new model I stumbled upon this keynote

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOWiXy50bEI

Does anyone have any release details around the IOS app required to enable intelligent proximity? I have searched the Apple app store and it doesn't appear to be available yet.

Thanks in advance.

Re: MX300 G2 - Intelligent Proximity

Hi,

Unfortunately, this feature is not available yet, that is why you cannot find any documentation or a page to download the app.

Cisco is going to release this feature soon. As this is a public forum, I cannot share the ETA for this functionality. Therefore, I suggest you to contact your local Cisco representative in order to get further information on when this new feature is going to be available.

I hope this help.

Regards

Everyone that connects to the endpoint using proximiry will be able to disconnect the call, I think this is what Darren is referring to.

Thanks, I managed to get some info from our Cisco account manager.

The Cisco Proximity app is

The Cisco Proximity app is avialable in the Apple store now (Canadian Store anyways).  I've installed it, but I cannot get it to work on C20 or SX20 codecs.  wonder if there is something that needs to be enabled on the codec first?

Great news, the app is also

Great news, the app is also now available in the UK store. Appears it is initially supported on SX20, SX80, MX200 G2, MX300 G2, MX700 and MX800 units & supported on software version TC7.1 which doesn't yet appear to be published. Watch this space. Thanks for providing the update. Exciting times.

New Member

I just found out that my the

I just found out that my the device needs to be on the same network as the codec.  I thought (naively), that the content was somehow transmitted through the ultrasound connection.  I was very excited, but now my entire Friday is ruined. We don't permit users to connect their devices directly to our network.

 

Got it to work with C90

Got it to work with C90 through the experimental menu settings, and it does use ultrasound for peering, however, I also found I could not only initiate new calls, but als disconnect the current call from within the app - and that is not good - what's worse is that I could do this from outside the room as well once it was peered.

So no, this is not a feature we can allow - unfortunately. :(

We will release a Cisco

We will release a Cisco Proximity Community in Cisco Support Forums this week. It´s great that you all have opinions on the Cisco Proximity. Currently you have to be on the same network as the system to make it work.

C-Series are not supported although the BYOD config and functionality is available on experimental in TC7.0.2.

TC7.1 is right around the corner and will be released very soon. I´ll post a note when we have released it.

Darren: For pairing it is using ultrasound, after this the communication is https. 

Jens: When you where outside of the room was all the doors/windows/passways/channels etc closed? A piece of paper can stop the ultrasound so when the rooms is closed this should not occur. Audio leakage is a possible vulnerability if the room has open doors / windows. This is something we will consider in the later release. You will also see on the system who is connecting to the system, although this is currently only the phone name which can be tampered with. The volume of the ultrasound can also be adjusted:

xConfiguration Experimental AudioPair DemoMode: On (disable automatic volume adjustment)
xConfiguration Experimental AudioPair Volume: 70 (0-100, 70 is default)

Regarding hanging up the call, we are aware of this and this might be improved so that we can prevent random meeting participants being able to hang up the call.

But for the time being the app is "use on your own risk".

Stay tuned for the new Cisco Proximity Community coming out this week, here you can share your experiences with the app and functionality. :)

Thanks Magnus,Will C-series

Thanks Magnus,

Will C-series be officially supported?

All windows and doors were shut; one story building, one door. Turning down ultrasound volume may help though, might give that a try even though we can't use this app anywhere due to connect/disconnect availability issue.

Unfortunately C-series will

Unfortunately C-series will not be supported. It is mainly the new portfolio that will get full support for most of the new features.

Yes, we figure this can create potential risks to the conference. We know about it and we will discuss it and hopefully come up with a solution that makes it a little more flexible to for example prevent the common user to be able to disconnect conferences of which they are not the host.

/Magnus

Probably neither here nor

Probably neither here nor there since it won't offcially support C-series considering features listed in the Experimental menu can be removed/changed at any time without warning in upcoming software releases.

We have a large number of C-series systems, which has to last at least another 3 - 5 years before we even consider upgrading considering the sheer costs involved. (We only purchased another 5 C90 systems late last year.) I suspect we won't be the only ones missing out.

Too bad as this looked like having a great potential in an university environment such as ours.

Out of curiosity, how many clients can connect simultaneously to a system?

Hi

Yes it is unfortunate but there was a good reason for it but I cannot recall what it was.

Here are the ones I know at least: SX20:8, MX200/300-G2: 8, SX80: 30, MX700/800: 30

Hey all, Thought I would pass

Hey all,

 

Thought I would pass along that I have this working on a C-20 that was updated to TC7.0.2.  Once it was updated I just had to add the xConfiguration command in the API section (was posted here earlier, but doesn't seem to be here anymore).  This is really slick.  The feature where snapshots are captured during the presentation so you can go back is really appealing.  Very well done on this one.  I will be sad to see it not supported on any of the C series once its out of beta though.

New Member

The problem with using this

The problem with using this on the C series devices is the disconnect option on the Ipad or iphone.

when I tested with my C20 on

when I tested with my C20 on TC7.0.2 with my iPad, there was a red disconnect option at the bottom of the iPad.  Admittedly, I didn't play with proximity much because I was frustrated after hearing the iPad had to be on the same network, so maybe this also appeard on the SX20, but I don't think it did.

Didn't they say this beta

Didn't they say this beta version would work with EX & C-series too?

According to the Cisco

According to the Cisco Proximity info in iTunes it gives a link, http://cisco.com/go/proximity, and it mentions the below.

Intelligent Proximity for Content Sharing is scheduled for release in April 2014 as a beta trial through an iOS app called Cisco Proximity. All of Cisco’s current TelePresence endpoints running software release TC 7.1 will be supported in the beta phase (C-Series, Profile, MX200, MX300, MX200 G2, MX300 G2, MX700, MX800, SX10, SX20 and SX80). Once fully released in late 2014, only Cisco's latest generation of room-based video endpoints using Touch 10 will be supported. A version of Cisco Proximity for Android-based mobile devices is planned for early 2015.

They need to include the C

They need to include the C-series.  To me they are a big part of the current hardware in use in the enviroment that would utilize this feature.

VIP Purple

Yeah, doesn't make sence that

Yeah, doesn't make sence that in the beta phase the list of endpoints are pretty much all TC software endpoints, then when fully released, the product list shrinks dramatically.  That is my take on that statement, I could be wrong, but reading that it looks like I'm right.

In the description in iTunes

In the description in iTunes appstore it says SX-series is supported, also says all require TC7.1 - which is not out as yet.

No C-series? Seriously? :(

Have you noticed they updated the wording on the proximity page, and removed any mention of what works in the beta version, including C-Series.  They also made a note that C-Series will not be supported at all.

Rather depressing  - was at least hoping C90 would be supported, here's hoping sanity will prevail...or we are at least given a very good reason as to why it won't be supported.
