Eduroam - WiFi connection
Eduroam is a service that is designed to allow staff and students to access the internet at participating institutions across the Czech Republic (and increasingly the world) using your university email address and password.
The eduroam project is carried on by the CESNET a.l.e. The idea to enable to users of interconnected networks easy and transparent usage was born in TERENA mobility TF. Our task (CESNET) is make usage of any network connected to roaming space as easy as using of roaming in cellphone networks. User should have one account (at his home site) and this account grands him permission to use any wireless network connected into eduroam. CESNET is working as member of TERENA mobility TF from it’s beginning to make that all reality.
