Secure wireless internet
Do students, researchers or academics from your organisation increasingly visit other educational or research institutions? Then you should certainly use eduroam (Education Roaming). Eduroam gives every user simple and secure access to their own wireless network and the networks of other participating organisations. So students and researchers from your organisation can surf wirelessly on the campus of another university or college. The access procedure always works via a user name and password which the user gets from his organisation. Eduroam is a joint initiative by the major European research networks.
A student from college X visits the library at University Y. Thanks to eduroam, he can surf University Y's wireless network using his laptop, user name and password.
A researcher can surf the Internet in seconds using eduroam, while he attends a conference at a Dutch university.
- Increased mobility
The service increases the mobility of researchers, students and academics. Users from education and research institutions have simple and secure wireless Internet access at home or abroad, even from organisations other than their own,.
- Efficient registration
Users need only one account to surf wirelessly, both within their own institutions and in other organisations which use eduroam. Once the service has been activated for a user, there is no further administrative work. And you no longer have to create accounts for users from other organisations who use eduroam.
- Accounts and access rights in-house
You have full control over the data concerning your own users. You do not have to give that data to other participating organisations. You decide which access rights eduroam users have on your network.
- Cost effective
Eduroam is available for no extra cost to higher education and research institutions only.
