OpenRoaming could create one global Wi-Fi network
The Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) has invited all organisations in the Wi-Fi ecosystem to join WBA OpenRoaming™ and become part of a globally available Wi-Fi federation that offers an automatic and secure connection of billions of devices to millions of Wi-Fi networks.

“The OpenRoaming™ initiative by WBA extends the power of Passpoint® technology by uniting the global Wi-Fi networks. It allows for seamless and secure connectivity which is highly desirable among end-users, service providers, and enterprises alike. OpenRoaming™ will open up new avenues for enterprises to discover new business opportunities. Hughes Systique is looking forward to participating in this journey towards achieving “cellular-like” automatic connectivity for the end-users across Wi-Fi networks.” Ajay Gupta, SVP, Global Business Development, Hughes Systique.

“OpenRoaming™ will provide virtually seamless hotspot connections to users around the globe and continues the rolling thunder of Wi-Fi innovations following Wi-Fi 6 and upcoming Wi-Fi 6E products. Intel is excited to join the WBA and our industry partners in delivering this world changing technology to a world that relies on connectivity more and more each day.” Eric McLaughlin, VP Client Computing Group, GM Wireless Solutions Group, Intel Corporation.

"We are very excited to be a part of the OpenRoaming™ implementation, IT&E is a proponent of seamless, zero-touch provisioning and onboarding for WiFi. Guam and the Northern Marianas being a major tourist destination will greatly benefit from OpenRoaming™ by allowing our tourist and visitors the ability to seamlessly and securely connect to our WiFi networks and hotspots. We are looking forward to collaborating with the WBA and everyone in the OpenRoaming™ ecosystem, OpenRoaming™ is definitely a game-changing wireless technology." Mark Badal, CIO, IT&E Guam & CNMI.

As part of WBA membership, Nomosphere is happy to support the OpenRoaming™ initiative. With this major project, the Wi-Fi worldwide ecosystem is focusing on improving customer experience, and on increasing Wi-Fi networks efficiency. We hope Nomosphere’s 10,000 hotspots will soon join this OpenRoaming™ community. Philippe LE GRAND, Vice President Nomosphere.
