Subscriber Access in a Wireless Roaming Environment

When subscribers log in to a wireless location that has a roaming agreement with other locations, the following sequence of events occurs:

  1. Subscribers connect to the local wireless location and provide login information on a portal page that provides a universal access method. This login information is forwarded to the SAE.
  2. Based on the login information, an access service starts.
  3. The subscriber is authenticated by RADIUS; the authorization includes RADIUS vendor-specific attributes for WISPr.
  4. Policies are activated for the subscriber on the router.
  5. After successful start of the access service, the portal page redirects the subscriber to a specified start page.

Figure 4 shows how subscribers interact with an SAE-managed wireless location that has a roaming agreement with wireless locations.
