eduroam (Federated Wi-Fi Access for Scholars Worldwide): Costs and Benefits

Tuesday, April 19 | 3:30PM–4:00PM
Session Type: Professional Development
Dedicated to the disinterested pursuit of knowledge, the Institute for Advanced Study works tirelessly to foster the work of scholars in a tranquil environment free of distraction. Unfortunately, this is difficult to archive when they travel to other institutions. The advent of the federated Wi-Fi access network eduroam allows us to at least give our scholars easy access when they are visiting a participating school. This seminar will speak to the costs (cheap to free) and benefits of participating with eduroam, including the security ramifications and cost savings of the CAT tool for 802.1x configuration.

OUTCOMES: Gain knowledge on what eduroam is and why it is important * Develop a plan to implement at your own school * Take away data supporting the use of eduroam
