802.11u

802.11u

An IEEE standard that supports automatic connectivity to 802.11 (Wi-Fi) networks. It enables mobile devices to query and obtain information from the hotspots it discovers in order to provide seamless roaming from one hotspot to another. Also known as "Hotspot 2.0" and "Passpoint." See Wi-Fi Passpoint and 802.11.

More specifically, we show that Hotspot 2.0 devices supporting the 802.11u standard or devices that incorrectly handle 802.11e Block Acknowledgements (BAs) frames can be actively probed, so that their presence is unwittingly exposed to a tracking system.
This is a certification, signifying that your device is capable of 802.1x and 802.11u functionalities.
The CiscoA Carrier-Grade Service Provider Wi-Fi infrastructure, deployed by Orange Romania, provides the access layer for the seamless authentication architecture as part of the Hotspot 2.0 initiative, including Wi-Fi Certified Passpoint protocols: IEEE 802.11u, WPA 2 Enterprise and EAP-SIM authentication.
He has reportedly drafted much of the IEEE 802.11u amendment and has also held the position of secretary for the IEEE 802.11 TGu.
SpiderCloud added that its new system will offer comprehensive enterprise- and service-provider grade Wi-Fi functionality, including automated RF planning, inter-radio node mobility, quality of service, wireless intrusion detection and prevention, 802.1x based authentication and 802.11u. The 3G and Wi-Fi systems will be fully integrated, providing mobile operators with a consistent management interface.
