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.
