How does the 802.11k assisted roaming work?

Devices which support this standard (e.g. more recent smartphones) can send a request to obtain a list of neighbor access points, with their channels and status, for instance when the signal strength of the current one starts weakening.

Once obtained, the devices know which access points are candidates for the next roam.

This standard specifies that, for example, if there’s an close access point with high traffic, and another with less traffic but farther than the first one, the recommended one will be this last one, due to its faster throughput capability.
