Eduroam provides users with authenticated network logon and access to the Internet through a single Wi-Fi profile and set of credentials, wherever the service has been made available by participating organisations. Connection can be seamless and automatic. Wired connections can also be supported.
By eduroam-enabling the network, organisations can provide guest network access services to visitors without the need for guest account management, saving time and cost for both the organisation and the visitor.
Participating organisations, using their existing infrastructures, connect to national NREN-operated RADIUS systems and overlay eduroam network services, which adhere to comprehensive technical standards.
