Jun 26, 2012 · The Wi-Fi Certified Passpoint program was developed by the largest working group ever formed in the Wi-Fi Alliance, with widespread support helping the certification program meet its deadlines

We normally think of Passpoint, the Wi-Fi Alliance certification, as a feature for Wi-Fi hotspots owned and operated by service providers. Passpoint enables comprehensive inter-carrier roaming The combination of Passpoint authentication and Wi-Fi calling enables robust in-building and campus cellular coverage, delivered over Wi-Fi. With this proven technology, it is not necessary to deploy costly and complex small cells, Citizen’s Band Radio Service (CBRS), private LTE or 5G or, in most cases, distributed antenna solutions. Oct 08, 2014 · The Wi-Fi Passpoint system continues to toil in relative obscurity, with most people unaware that a network of open Wi-Fi hotspots can be easily accessed via your phone or tablet. May 10, 2020 · The Wi-Fi Alliance explicitly claims that Passpoint is “specified for WiFi4EU,” an “initiative (that) promotes free access to Wi-Fi connectivity for citizens in public spaces including parks, squares, public buildings, libraries, health centers and museums in municipalities throughout Europe.”

The WFA recently announced the "Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Passpoint certification program for network infrastructure solutions and mobile devices, based on the Hotspot 2.0 specification. So what is driving all the interest in Passpoint? The key issue from the operators' perspective is data offload.
