Make Wi-Fi Roaming Effortless
Mobile users flock to Wi-Fi as soon as they can, rushing to an open Wi-Fi network like it’s an oasis in the desert. But they usually have to work for it: finding and selecting the right network, logging on through a portal, often having to re-enter their credentials multiple times. So while public Wi-Fi services are growing by leaps and bounds, they’re still a pain for users. Which means that operators deploying it aren’t seeing as much usage—and value—as they otherwise might.
Wouldn’t it be nice if Wi-Fi could work like cellular roaming—if users could just power up their device, and they’d be online? With the 802.11u wireless roaming standard and Hotspot 2.0, now they can.
