Hotspot 2.0 Overview

ArubaOS supports HotspotHotspot refers to a WLAN node that provides Internet connection and virtual private network (VPN) access from a given location. A business traveler, for example, with a laptop equipped for Wi-Fi can look up a local hotspot, contact it, and get connected through its network to reach the Internet. 2.0 with enhanced network discovery and selection. Clients can receive general information about the network identity, venue, and type via management frames from the AP. Clients can also query APs for information about the available IP address type (IPv4 or IPv6) of the network, roaming partners, and supported authentication methods, and receive that information in ANQPAccess Network Query Protocol. ANQP is a query and a response protocol for Wi-Fi hotspot services. ANQP includes information Elements (IEs) that can be sent from the AP to the client to identify the AP network and service provider. The IEs typically include information about the domain name of the AP operator, the IP addresses available at the AP, and information about potential roaming partners accessible through the AP. If the client responds with a request for a specific IE, the AP will send a Generic Advertisement Service (GAS) response frame with the configured ANQP IE information. Information Elements from the AP.
