A passpoint policy provides an interoperable platform for streamlining Wi-Fi access to access points deployed as public hotspots. Passpoint is supported across a wide range of wireless network deployment scenarios and client devices.
Passpoint makes connecting to Wi-Fi networks easier by authenticating the user with an account based on an existing relationship, such as the user's mobile carrier or broadband ISP.
The Passpoint Policy screen displays a list of passpoint polices for network hotspots. Each passpoint policy can be selected to edit its properties. If no exiting passpoint policies supports the required deployment, select Add to create a new policy.
To administrate and manage existing passpoint policies:
|Policy Name||Displays the administrator assigned name of each passpoint policy.|
|Access Network Type||Displays the network access permissions the administrator has set for the passpoint policy|
|Operator Name||Displays the unique name assigned to the administrator or operator responsible for the configuration and operation of the hotspot|
|Venue Name||Displays the administrator assigned name of the venue or physical location of the deployed hotspot|
