OpenRoaming, currently in beta, allows mobile users to automatically and seamlessly roam across Wi-Fi and cellular networks including Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) and 5G. This is achieved through a collective of industry partners whose goal is to provide a better bridge between mobile and Wi-Fi networks.
In partnership with other vendors and enterprises, Cisco is working to provide a better bridge between mobile devices and Wi-Fi networks. With frictionless and secure guest onboarding, users can roam across Wi-Fi and cellular networks including Wi-Fi 6 and 5G, automatically maintaining connectivity with security and achieving the ultimate roaming experience.
Stay connected everywhere with OpenRoaming and Cisco's best-of-breed networks. Go from the coffee shop, to the mall, to a concert and never miss a thing.
Customers can use any of their common identity or service provider credentials to automatically and securely connect to any participating wireless network.
Leveraging the unprecedented global reach of Cisco Wi-Fi technology, we are giving our users free access to more Wi-Fi networks than ever before.
Industry-standard WPA2 protocols and connection through an authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) server ensure the most secure connection possible for our users.
Cisco is working hard to identify partners that would most benefit from being part of the OpenRoaming Federation. We are collaborating with a handful of companies to make OpenRoaming technology available worldwide.
