Jun 26, 2012, 6:56 AM by Eric M. Zeman
The Wi-Fi Alliance today announced that it has begun the process for certifying devices as compliant and compatible with its new Passpoint service. Passpoint is a joint effort between Wi-Fi mobile hotspot operators, wireless network operators, and Wi-Fi service aggregators to help provide consumers with seamless access to Wi-Fi hotspots in a secure and simple process. The first batch of devices to be certified as Passpoint compliant are wireless access points, but the Wi-Fi Alliance expects that many more devices — including smartphones, tablets, and laptops — will become certified as 2012 progresses. The Passpoint program has been under development since 2010.
