Avalanche powered by Wavelink


Wi-Fi Payload (Android/iOS)

A Wi-Fi payload provisions devices with Wi-Fi settings to connect to a Wi-Fi network. This may include the SSID and password, encryption and authentication types, and proxy settings. If multiple Wi-Fi payloads are deployed to the same device, the priority in which networks are connected to is determined at the device level and cannot be set in Avalanche.

If a Wi-Fi payload is unapplied in Avalanche, the Wi-Fi settings are not removed from affected Android devices. If you want to remove the settings at the device level, you must perform a selective wipe on the desired devices or remove the settings manually.

A Wi-Fi payload has the following options:


When a Wi-Fi payload is deployed to an Android device, it has a higher priority over other manual and auto-scan Wi-Fi connections. The device will always attempt to connect to wireless networks from Avalanche payloads before attempting other networks.

Payload Name

The name of the payload.

Service set identifier

The SSID of the Wi-Fi network.

Auto join

Configures the device to automatically join the Wi-Fi network when it is available.

Hidden network

Allows the device to find the Wi-Fi network when the network is not open or broadcasting.

Security type

The encryption type of the Wi-Fi network.


Use a proxy server with the Wi-Fi connection.

Proxy server and port

This field appears when the Manual (Android 4.0 and later) setting for Proxy is selected.

Proxy bypass

The hostname or IP address for traffic that won't be redirected through your proxy server. For example, your Active Directory server should be set as a bypass proxy for verifying credentials.
