CMX (Connected Mobile Experiences) is Cisco’s location analytics and engagement platform, and it’s integrated into Cisco Meraki wireless products. CMX provides an API that allows you to export the location data to your own application. This sample app shows will show you how to get started using the Cisco Meraki CMX API.
An important component of empowering this creative use of CMX location analytics is the CMX Application Programming Interface (API). This lets organizations have access to the raw data used by the Meraki dashboard. With access to the raw data there are some major benefits. The full device identities are included, facilitating lookup by other applications by MAC address or IP address. The data is provided with only a short delay between it being created and presented to the API.
The CMX API allows for software to be developed that are location and identity aware. User identity can be linked to devices, location awareness becomes bound only by the geographical dispersion of your access points (AP). The CMX API version 2.0 can be selected in the Meraki dashboard and offers X,Y coordinates and latitude and longitude values. You can now track any device in Cisco Meraki’s headquarters in San Francisco with the CMX demo app.
This type of API integration can be complex to create for any application developer. To make developers’ jobs easier, Meraki has published open source code for this app right here for you to copy and reuse on GitHub.
