The WBA will continue to work with carriers to ensure their customers enjoy a seamless Wi-Fi experience using Next Generation Hotspot (NGH) Wi-Fi network featuring Passpoint™ technology at global events such as GSMA’s Mobile World Congress and WBA’s Wireless Global Congress.
The advanced wireless network has been engineered by WBA member companies to offer conference attendees a seamless and secure roaming experience between cellular and Wi-Fi services.
City Wi-Fi Roaming Trial
These initiatives deliver a fully operational NGH Wi-Fi network on a grand scale in partnership with City authorities and other venues, which raise participation numbers by a very large margin.
Carrier Wireless Services Certification (CWSC) testing program
WBA has launched the Carrier Wireless Services Certification (CWSC) testing program for members (and sponsor partners) providing unprecedented capabilities to test the end-to-end Carrier wireless ecosystem to ensure that the service operation and user experience is consistent. The CWSC testing is run based on the same principles as the Next Generation Hotspot (NGH) Trials but they are conducted by recognized testing labs using the same scenarios as performed on the different phases of the NGH Trials.
