At Sandbox, we enjoy making access to the latest Cisco APIs quick and easy for everyone in the DevNet community.  One of the ways we achievie this is building more Always-on sandbox environments and we have continued this with our Connected Mobile Experience (CMX) labs.

We have just launched two new CMX always-on sandbox labs, CMX Cloud and CMX Presence. We have also updated or CMX location sandbox to 10.3 and added some new content. More details below. All of the below labs are located in the Networking category of the sandbox portal.

CMX Cloud

The new CMX Cloud Sandbox is essentially running the CMX software in a Cisco supported cloud that is accessible and delivered as a software subscription to the customer. Both the software and support are included in the service offering. This sandbox contains the latest version of the CMX Cloud package, Connect with Presence Analytics, and is tied to a simulated environment that contains an access point and clients. This allows you to utilise the full range of APIs offered by the Cisco CMX Cloud interfaces.

Currently the CMX cloud sandbox can be accessed through For more details, go to the Sandbox topology page here.

CMX Presence

  • New always on Sandbox with Cisco CMX 10.3
  • Publicly available CMX Presence:
  • CMX monitoring AP with 20 client

Hi, you've listed 3 sandboxes:

  1. CMX Cloud
  2. CMX Presence
  3. CMX Location

I understood that there are two main "editions" of the CMX, on-premise, and in the Cloud.

Is it correct to say that the CMX Cloud doesn't support the location services (analytics, APIs, notifications) and so it is similar to CMX Presence?

What is the difference in terms of capabilities between the CMX Presence and CMX Cloud?

You are correct in saying CMX Cloud is similar to CMX Presence, however CMX Cloud has been advanced in functionality over on-premise CMX Presence.  CMX Cloud will allow large systems to scale, supports Beacon Center for proximity engagement, integrate with existing Cisco or Meraki wireless networks, lower cost of equipment and maintenance, etc.

Let me see if I can find the latest study of the differences, or pros/cons, for the latest CMX offerings.

Thanks for the question,
