FortiWLC – Hotspot 2.0

Hotspot 2.0

Hotspot 2.0 is a specification by the Wi-Fi Alliance that specifies a framework for seamless roaming between WiFi networks and Cellular networks. The specification is based on the IEEE802.11u standard; a Generic Advertisement Service (GAS) that provides over-the-air

Hotspot 2.0

transportation for frames of higher layer advertisements between stations APs and external information servers. This feature will allow users to configure hotspot profiles that can (optionally) be connected to existing ESS Profiles as desired. An ESS-profile connected to a hotspot profile will advertise 802.11u capabilities in its beacons.

FAP-U42x and FAP-U32x are Passpoint R2 certified.
