What is Hotspot 2.0

[ Edited ]

I'm using the Hotspot (1.0 I guess). Today I updated my controller to 5.3.8, and I noticed the option for Hotspot 2.0. What is the difference? I searched but couldn't find any description. As it is 'Beta' is it stable enough for commercial environment? And does it keep the current hotspot configurations?

Re: What is Hotspot 2.0

Hotspot 2.0 is a beta feature. the ubnt guy tell me that. features such as it allows roaming between different wireless networks with advanced authentication systems. It's main use is for mobile devices to roam and authenticate between different networks. An example, is if your mobile provider has a roaming agreement with a hotel chain, then when the phone is in range of the hotel's WiFi, it will automatically join that network without the user having to enter credentials or select the network.
