Can the XBee Wifi module be used like a Hotspot?

We have multiple linux device each with its own Xbee Wifi module. We want users with smartphone or laptop to be able to browse available Wifi hotspots, connect to them and then query some data from the linux device.

Can the Xbee Wifi module be configured in an infrastructure mode, so users can connect to it?

Yes it can be configured for IBS Joiner or Creator as well as infrastructure mode.
