Room:      MC 2009

Wireless access has become expected resource. It still has a ways to go, as arranging access at every institution is confusing and time-consuming for both clients and IT support staff. This is about to change with eduroam.



A "configure it once and forget about it" system,  eduroam has arrived in Canada after years of development in Europe. After an initial rollout on 5 campuses last summer it's now available at 20 (and counting) post secondary institutions across the country.



Jeff will be going over the history of eduroam, what it does for you (and how it does it), and why you might be interested in using it.
