The need for ubiquitous connectivity is greater than ever. This is especially true in the research and education community, where students, researchers, and faculty frequently roam across campuses and institutions across the country and abroad.

eduroam is currently accessible to 86% of the Canadian higher ed community.  To manage Wi-Fi access for campus visitors, IT departments often roll out additional networks that may broadcast unsecure, open SSIDs or use costly 3rdparty solutions.

CANARIE’s Canadian Access Federation (CAF) is launching eduroam Visitor Access (eVA), a guest W-Fi service that leverages institutions’ existing eduroam infrastructure. This service will allow CAF participants to easily provide the same secure and reliable eduroam access to their visitors! 

Come and learn more about this exciting new offering and best practices your institution can adopt to ensure that eduroam’s security benefits are maximized.
