We have recently been given this unusual task. The setup is a series of CAP3502P access points, and a wireless controller (either 2500 Series or 5500 Series), as well as other standard network infrastructure.
In this network, the client (mobile/wireless) devices must be able to detect when they change what access point they are communicating through, while also requiring a seamless transition. Ie, if the client device is communicating via access point A, and displaying the application menus for A, when the user walks to the area services by access point B, it must detect that sot he application can display menus for B, without the user having to select "B".
Is there a way for the client device to detect which access point it is using and provide that to an application? Or alternatively a way for a host service residing on a server to get that information from the wireless controller?
I assume here MSE refers to Mobility Services Engine. From what you say, does this mean there is such an API, or there may be such an API?
The trick here is there is only one WLC, which all APs pass through. So the more important distinction is which AP the mobile client device is connected through.
(Or I am miss-reading the term WLC to mean WireLess Controller instead of WireLess Client?).
It should be noted that this is a single LAN-side system, there are no remote sites/areas across routers etc. All the APs and Controller are in a single LAN (and VLAN). I don't know if that changes anything.

This is the start of a display filter cross reference between Wireshark and OmniPeek.
The 1st installment is a table of advanced filters. More filters will be added as time allows.
It is a living doc, so check back for changes every so often

I have created a Powershell script to automatically add a Wireless Guest User on Cisco WLCs. (tested on 2500 Series)
The script should be completely self explanatory.
