Cisco moves WiFi roaming technology to wireless broadband consortium

The Wireless Broadband Alliance has taken over development and promotion of Cisco’s OpenRoaming technology, which lets devices move between Wi-Fi and cellular networks such as LTE without interrupting service.

The expectation is that WBA can bring about the broad adoption of OpenRoaming by new and existing Wi-Fi network customers, identity and service providers.

The nearly 100 member WBA includes a wide variety of industry players including AT&T, Boingo, Broadcom, Cisco, Comcast, Intel, Facebook, Google, HPE Aruba and others.
