What is OpenWiFi?

Seperating Access Point Hardware from Software

OpenWiFi is a community-developed, disaggregated Wi-Fi software system, offered as free open-source software, that includes both a cloud SDK and an Enterprise-grade Service Provider Access Point (AP) firmware, designed and validated to work seamlessly together.

To learn more about the features, benefits and applications of OpenWiFi, listen to our podcast "OpenWiFi: The Future of Seamless & Scalable Enterprise Connectivity" where we interviewed Jack RaynorSenior Technology Consultant at Meta, and Co-Chair of the TIP OpenWiFi Project and Andrew Westerman, Vice President, International Sales, IO by HFCL on this topic.

OpenWiFi

An industry movement for accelerating Wi-Fi infrastructure innovation

The OpenWiFi software tech stack incorporates advanced Enterprise and Carrier-grade features, including open, standardized APIs and data models (AP & Controller); scalable mobility & Wi-Fi meshing; extensible Radio Resource Management (RRM); Passpoint (802.11u) and OpenRoaming; configuration, telemetry & analytics, and much more.
 

The community oversees and ensures OpenWiFi based products are compliant with the software tech stack.

Compliance testing includes:

  • Each access point hardware SKU passes software capability testing
  • Cloud solutions can interwork with any OpenWiFi compliant access point
  • Software products properly implement the OpenWiFi cloud controller SDK northbound API
  • Multi-vendor OpenWiFi networks interoperate as expected. (meshing, RRM, etc.)

OpenWiFi is an open sourced, community-developed, disaggregated Wi-Fi software system. The system includes a cloud controller SDK and an Enterprise-grade Access Point (AP) firmware, designed and validated to work seamlessly together.
