Seamless Integration for Teams, Meetings, & Devices

With 22Miles custom signage mode enabled, Webex integration delivers a full digital signage experience, supporting both passive and interactive digital signage capabilities. Users may watch live or recorded video, view presentations, web content, and book meeting rooms.
The CISCO Webex Board and Room Series devices integration facilitates the display of information on digital signage displays both in active and in idle mode. With the setup of an easy-use integrated browser, users can view important on-screen information, watch live or recorded video, view presentations, web content, or book a meeting room directly from their device. Additionally, the CISCO Room-Kit boasts several new advancements including density controls in huddle rooms and other dynamic features that complement the PaaS suite and focus of 22Miles.
22MILES EVP Tomer Mann views the integration as an excellent fit into the technology initiatives 22MILES has released to date in 2020.
“We’ve had a lot of exciting collaborative relationships expand this year with companies like Crestron, Intel, & Flir to name a few. In integrating with CISCO’s offerings, the two technologies complement each other in terms of establishing a diverse corporate communication publishing platform for digital signage that spans meeting room devices, mobile and desktop, and so much more,” he commented.
“This integration allows end-users to create, manage, and publish corporate communication messaging to CISCO Webex teams spaces and other collaborators in real-time. The room booking portion gives visibility for instant knowledge of occupied and unoccupied room status by associated color icons and displays of room availability for quick booking. Users have total control to filter by destination and room types, search any floor and directory, view occupant status and density, available seats, any details you would need. You can even interact with a Webex meeting through sensors (IoT), and it brings the full spectrum of services from POI destination to Location-Based tech,” Mann added.
