Wireless - What Is Eduroam?

Eduroam is an international WiFi service organized by academic institutions to facilitate network access. Anyone from an Eduroam-provisioned campus, when on-site at a different Eduroam-provisioned campus, can log into the Eduroam WiFi service using their home campus NetID and password.
