NGH Provisioning efforts focus on Wi-Fi adoption and growth while addressing the need for an industry standardized approach to discover a NGH network and related services, associate automatically and securely, be provisioned with network access credentials with minimal user interaction, and use the service without delay. Such a flow would also reduce the friction to NGH adoption and simplify deployments by eliminating the need to use a separate on-boarding network like an open network.
