  •  Service description

Eduroam (abbreviation of education roaming) is the world-wide service for secure mobility developed for the academic and research community. The slogan Eduroam is: "open your laptop and you are connected".

The service provides students, researchers, and staff of the participant institutions with connectivity to Internet through their own campus when they visit other participant institutions.
During the last years, technologies related to mobile access services have grown in importance from the point of view of the telephone, but also from the point of view of access to telematic services that requires a wireless connection to a network. In addition to the problem of establishing a wireless connection to the network (which is purely technical), other problems arise that are related to the management of mobile connections and the management of users that roam between organisations.

¿What is Eduroam? (Source:

EDUROAM.ES  is an initiative included in the RedIRIS Eduroam project. The main goal is to coordinate the initiatives of diverse organisations at a national level in order to achieve a unique mobility space in Spain. This unique mobility space consists of an ample group of organisations that, on the basis of a use policy and a series of technical and functional requirements, allows these users to roam between organisations and provides them with the mobile services that they may need. The last goal is that when roaming users arrive at another organization, they have a virtual work environment with connection to the Internet, access to services and resources of her or his source organisation, as well as access to services and resources of the host organisation in the most transparent way possible. 

On the other hand, EDUROAM.ES it is part of the Eduroam initiative at an international level, funded by GEANT 3 and operated by several European research and academic networks and TERENA. This initiative expands the mobility space to the European academic envirronment ¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿through Europe Eduroam, and builds bridges with Eduroam CanadaEduroam US, and Eduroam APAN (Asia and Pacific).
