MSE triggers.

What are the triggers supported by MSE to push info to the Application Server through the API?

A main feature of Cisco MSE is its capability to broadcast a real-time stream of events to a destination. Cisco MSE can generate and send multiple types of events, but for the purposes of this document, the events of interest are:

1. Location update events

2. Containment events

3. Generic northbound notifications

Location Update Events Location update events are configurable events that can direct Cisco MSE to generate notifications whenever a wireless device moves a certain distance. This feature can be enabled using the API and requires the following information:

• URL of the event receiver

• Movement distance

• Message protocol: XML or text

• Destination type: Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), or syslog

• Device type: client, rogue, tag, or interferer

• MAC address filter

Every location update event that is sent by Cisco MSE includes the MAC address of the device, the floor on which the device is located, and the x, y coordinates of the device on the floor, among other information.

Q5. Are the triggers based on detecting the presence of a new user in a specific zone, and provide user location every time the user sends a probe and MSE calculates user location (independently of whether the user changed location)? If that's so, then there are "continuous" triggers from MSE to the App server for each user, correct?
