Thanks Jouni for your reply,

Read that 802.11r fast BSS transition (roaming) can happen within Protocol
layer 2 or layer3.

Please let me know what kind of roaming(802.11r) is supported by hostapd and
mac80211(incase u know)?

is there any document on "how does hostapd achieve do the 802.11r"

How do i test 802.11r?

Please help!!
