Eduroam: A current view of the worldwide service

744 views

Published on

For over 11 years eduroam has been streamlining the mobile user experience and making it easier for researchers and students on the go to collaborate and innovate. With millions of transactions a day across over 60 countries the eduroam approach has scaled and kept abreast of the fast pace of change in ICT and explosive growth in mobile devices. Tapping into the talent pool of the eduroam community has been instrumental to keeping the service relevant and meaningful for the past decade and for more years to come. We'll share how we do this and some of the activities and areas of focus ahead.

  29. 29. www.canarie.cahttp://www.flickr.com/photos/wiemann/1521876735/ Some Signs we are preferred… •  Use of eduroam over ‘free’ wifi •  Eduroam SSID is sought after for conferences and events •  Others emulating the service •  Gaining transit in new areas at reduced costs
  30. 30. www.canarie.cahttp://www.flickr.com/photos/kalexanderson/8024593675/ Why ‘Free’ is never really free •  you are always exchanging SOMETHING •  Time – accepting multi-screen Terms & Conditions repetitively. •  Personal data – Do you really need my passport or CPF? •  Security risk - how do I know this wifi won’t do something evil?
  31. 31. www.canarie.ca Guiding Principles •  Be where the user needs us to be •  Maintain ease of use •  Continue to be vigilant about security •  Continue to be the advocate for the end user •  Do this consistently and reliably http://www.flickr.com/photos/cmichel67/3899744510/sizes/o/in/photostream/
