Here are some more details if you want to get really technical:
Passpoint is a certification program for devices and equipment using WBA Next Generation Hotspot standards and guidelines. Implementation of these guidelines enable roaming and network interoperability between different providers when Passpoint certified equipment is in use.
Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Passpoint devices and hotspot networking equipment implement standardized mechanisms to allow devices from different manufacturers to perform these operations:
Network Discovery and Selection: Devices will discover and automatically choose networks based upon user preferences, operator policies and network optimization.
Streamlined Network Access: In many cases, devices will be automatically granted access to the network based upon credential mechanisms, such as SIM cards, which are widely used in cellular devices today.
