Creates a new passpoint policy and enters its configuration mode. The passpoint policy implements the Hotspot 2.0 Wi-Fi Alliance standard, enabling interoperability between clients, infrastructure, and operators. It makes a portion of the IEEE 802.11u standard mandatory and adds Hotspot 2.0 extensions that allow clients to query a network before actually attempting to join it.

The passpoint policy allows a single or set of Hotspot 2.0 configurations to be global and referenced by the devices that use it. It is mapped to a WLAN. However, only primary WLANs on a BSSID will have their passpoint policy configuration used.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Access Points — AP505i, AP510i/e, AP560i/h
  • Service Platforms — NX5500, NX7500, NX9500, NX9600, VX9000
