Configures a NAI (Network Access Identifier) realm name and enters its configuration mode

The NAI is the user identity submitted by the hotspot requesting client during authentication. The standard syntax is user@realm. NAI is frequently used when roaming, to identify the user and assist in routing an authentication request to the user's authentication server. The realm name is often the domain name of the service provider.

You can configure a list of NAI realm names of service providers operating within a specific hotpsot zone. This NAI realm name list is presented in ANQP response to a NAI realm and NAI home realm query.

Supported in the following platforms:

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