Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS OF WI-FI ENABLED DEVICE CONFIGURATION
Abstract:
Systems and methods of configuration of Configuration Target Wi-Fi enabled devices are disclosed. The present invention applies to Configuration Target Wi-Fi enabled client devices that implement a method that allows their fast configuration over the air. The configuration parameters include but are not limited to the name of a wireless network to connect after the completion of the configuration and the credentials they may need if an authentication mechanism is used for secure connection. The method uses standard 802.11 management frames that carry useful configuration information in a predefined format and the said management frames are broadcasted by a single source (Configurator) and are received by one or many wireless stations (Configuration Targets) that have the capability to parse the contents of the management frames and retrieve the configuration information.
