Airplay on RoomOS 11 with Beacon working?

Hi Community,

i was very happy to read about native AirPlay Support on RoomOS in the now relaesed Stable Version.

i want to get that working in my company network on 22 devices now.
all RoomKit or RoomKit Plus devices.

found now this help article: Configure wireless sharing with AirPlay (

my network guys say it is very hard to get it working via the same broadcast domain as our securtity is very high and the Room Devices are in an other vlan than the Win & Mac Laptops.

the second option in the help article is about " to enable discovery beacon support on the Webex device"
did all the settings but had no sucess seeing the devie on mac or iDevice.

any hints?
is this working at any of you that way?

if not, is there a detailed setup guide, what has to be done on network site to get it work with broadcast domain?
we are full on cisco Switches & APs here.

thx in advance!

It is common to see standard Infosec policy to prevent building larger Layer 2 flood domains in Enterprise. As a best practices this is primarily driven to support stringent security, network resiliency, end-point performance and other key factors.

In Enterprise, the Cisco Catalyst switches, Wireless can route the any Multicast DNS (mDNS) protocol based services such as AirPlay, ChromeCast, Printer and many more. The mDNS services can be routed across IP network without forklifting changes that needs restructuring and redesigning complete infrastructure.

You can recommend your Network IT team to refer following several documentations to enable Cisco Webex AirPlay across Enterprise:
