Eduroam service (education roaming) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.
Benefits of Eduroam service:
- Eduroam provides a single solution that accommodates all the mobile connectivity requirements of an institution – it supports the local users connecting to the local network, visitors connecting to the local network and local users connecting to other networks, affiliated either to the main Eduroam organisation (www.eduroam.org ) or the local one (www.eduroam.ro) .
- Eduroam removes the need to supply temporary accounts to visiting users, thereby reducing the administrative and support burden imposed by the ever-growing shifting of students and researchers between institutions and countries.
- Students, members of the staff, and researchers may thus acquire a quick, easy and secure online access without campus IT support
- The secure login system means that passwords are kept private at all times and visiting staff can be assigned a separate VLAN to keep the traffic isolated.
