Wi-Fi Easy Connect

簡便、安全地連接Wi-Fi®設備

Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Easy Connect™降低了設備與Wi-Fi®網路連接的複雜性,提升了用戶體驗,同時採用了最高級別的安全標準。Wi-Fi Easy Connect™引入了標準化機制,以簡化Wi-Fi設備的配置。現在,可以非常簡便地配置設備,包括那些沒有豐富使用者介面的設備,通過掃描產品QR碼、NFC標籤或從雲下載設備資訊,就可實現與Wi-Fi網路的零接觸式連接。

Wi-Fi Easy Connect支持最高級別的WPA3™安全技術,通過公用金鑰加密方法納入了強大的加密能力,以在增加新設備時仍然保持網路的安全性。

Wi-Fi Easy Connect技術能夠以前所未有的易用性提供安全網路接入,提高了安全性和易用性水準。

  • 為設備接入網路提供標準的、一致的方法。
  • 通過使用QR碼、NFC標籤或從雲下載的設備資訊和智慧手機、平板電腦等使用者選擇的配置器來管理網路接入,簡化了設備配置。
  • 通過使用QR碼實現幾乎零接觸的連接;通過從雲下載設備資訊實現真正的零接觸連接。
  • 適用於任何Wi-Fi Easy Connect設備,包括那些沒有或幾乎沒有使用者介面的設備,例如智慧家居產品和IoT產品。
  • 通過重新配置和支援多種配置器來改善網路管理。
  • 使用公用金鑰加密方法進行安全的身份驗證。
  • 支援面向WPA2™和WPA3網路的配置。
  • 支援使用公用金鑰身份資訊的設備進行註冊,設備註冊所用身份資訊通過帶外機制傳送,例如通過NFC傳送。
  • 即使網路有變化,例如使用新的SSID,也能夠保持設備與網路的連接。
  • 更換AP時,無需將所有設備重新註冊到新的AP。
  • 通過使用狀態資訊通知,允許多個設備在部署到Wi-Fi網路之前同時得到配置。
  • 利用WPA3-Enterprise安全技術支援企業級配置。

改善使用者管理Wi-Fi網路的體驗

通過Wi-Fi Easy Connect,網路所有者可以選擇一個設備作為配置中心點。通常這個設備擁有豐富的使用者介面,例如智慧手機或平板電腦,不過也可以是能夠掃描QR碼、NFC標籤或能夠從雲下載設備資訊和運行Wi-Fi Alliance®協定的任何設備。所選定的設備被視為配置器,所有其他設備均視為需要註冊的設備。通過掃描特定於設備的QR碼、NFC標籤,或從雲下載與設備關聯的資訊,使用者就可以為需要註冊的設備建立安全的連接。註冊過程中會提示要運行的協定,並自動使用接入網路所需的憑證來配置需要註冊的設備。

Wi-Fi Easy Connect為Wi-Fi網路管理提供了簡便性、一致性和靈活性。

  • 使用簡便直觀;設置新設備時無需閱讀冗長的說明。
  • 無需記住密碼並將密碼輸入到接受配置的設備中。
  • 可使用電子或列印的QR碼、NFC標籤或從雲下載的設備資訊。
  • 通過使用QR碼實現幾乎零接觸的配置。
  • 通過從雲下載設備資訊實現真正的零接觸配置。

Frequently Asked Questions
  • How can a device be connected to a network with minimum user intervention?

    A device can be seamlessly added to the network with near zero touch or true zero touch methods. Near zero touch provisioning and configuration can be done using a QR code. True zero touch provisioning and configuration can be done by downloading device information into the configurator from the cloud. The user simply powers up the device and it is automatically connected to the network.

  • Do devices using Wi-Fi Easy Connect need to be manually reconfigured when there is a change to a network?

    No. Wi-Fi Easy Connect allows for a device to systematically discover and re-engage in the configuration process with the configurator to receive updated network configuration information. This is especially useful for IoT devices with a limited user interface (UI) or where a device may be installed in a hard-to-reach location.

  • Does Wi-Fi Easy Connect support enterprise applications with higher levels of security?

    Yes, Wi-Fi Easy Connect supports enterprise provisioning using WPA3-Enterprise security, requiring EAP-TLS authentication. When using EAP-TLS, clients and servers mutually authenticate using X.509 certificates. With Wi-Fi Easy Connect, the enrollee should receive its certificate when provisioning occurs.

  • Can there be more than one configurator on a network?

    Yes, Wi-Fi Easy Connect supports multiple configurators on a network. One advantage of multiple configurators is for backup and restore of a network. If one of the configurators is not available, another can be used to configure new devices and maintain configuration of the current network.

  • Does the technology work with Wi-Fi EasyMesh, or other multiple access point Wi-Fi systems?

    Yes, Wi-Fi Easy Connect can be used to provision clients to establish secure communications with Wi-Fi EasyMesh access points.

  • What if a home or office has more than one network?

    If the home or office uses a single access point to provide more than one network, Wi-Fi Easy Connect can be used to add one or more networks on the access point. The Wi-Fi Easy Connect protocol would need to be run independently to add each network.

  • Can the same device be a configurator for more than one network?

    Yes, the configurator software can be implemented on a device to provide provisioning for more than one logical network.

  • Is there a limit to how many devices one can configure at a time using Wi-Fi Easy Connect?

    There is no limit to the number of devices a configurator may provision for a network, unless the network itself has connection limitations. Additionally, Wi-Fi Easy Connect enables bulk enrollment of Wi-Fi devices.
