Peanut butter and jelly. Sonny and Cher. Han Solo and Princess Leia. Just a few examples of life’s greatest love stories. Sure, each one as a standalone is great, but the two together? It’s a perfect match.

Today, there’s a new pairing in town. Cisco Mobility Express and Connected Mobile Experiences (CMX) Cloud are now seamlessly integrated thanks to Wireless Release 8.3. Let’s talk about why this combination is so powerful.

With today’s digital consumers, providing Wi-Fi in your business is a necessity rather than simply a luxury. And mobility services that complement Wi-Fi is a key differentiator for any organization looking to add value and drive revenue through personalizing customer engagement and improving operations. This sounds great if you’ve got the budget and the resources, but what if you’re a small to medium sized organization with a lean or nonexistent IT department? How will you keep pace with your competitors to successfully deploy and manage it all?

Enter Mobility Express and CMX Cloud. Limited budget? No problem. IT team of one? That’s ok. With these integrated solutions, it’s simpler than ever to quickly deploy 1) an on-premise wireless network with a built-in virtual controller, along with 2) cloud-delivered guest access captive portal to onboard customers and generating analytics for customer insights. And it’s done without compromising on enterprise-class performance and reliability.


How can Mobility Express and CMX Cloud be used in your industry? Just a few examples below:

  • Retail and Hospitality: Provide your customers and guests with free Wi-Fi access while A/B testing relevant promotions in the captive portal.
  • K-12 Education: Quickly get your campus Wi-Fi up and running, and generate analytics to understand how the campus space is being utilized.
  • Small-medium office buildings: Easily authenticate corporate guests onboarding to Wi-Fi via voucher generation or sponsor emails.


Future-proof your investment as your organization grows, since there is no need to rip and replace APs to expand your network. You’re also able to easily upgrade CMX licenses, whether from one CMX Cloud license to another, or from CMX Cloud to on-premises CMX.
