Feature Limitations

  • WPA2-802.1X authentication must be configured for Hotspot 2.0 services.

  • In WPA2-802.1X authentication, an AP uses the same GTK to send broadcast packets to different STAs, which brings security risks. Therefore, the AP is forbidden to forward broadcast or multicast packets to STAs.

  • To automatically select and access Hotspot 2.0 networks, wireless terminals must support Hotspot 2.0 and 802.1X client, and be configured with identity credentials, such as the SIM/USIM card acquired from the service provider; otherwise, users need to manually search for SSIDs of the desired networks and enter identity authentication information to access the networks.
