The universal access method (UAM) is frequently used by WiFi operators to allow access to a wireless network or access to another network while roaming.

The roaming customer uses a regular web browser to access a login page on the captive portal where he can fill in his credentials (typically his username and password) to get access to the network.

AAA is then usually done using RADIUS.
