Eduroam

Living

Pilsen is the first of all Czech cities to become a member of the globally known Eduroam network.

What’s the aim of the project?

To integrate the city’s wi-fi network (including free wi-fi) into the Eduroam network.

What’s the result of the project?

Pilsen is a member of the Eduroam network, the first one among Czech cities. Eduroam
is short for Education Roaming. It is a computer infrastructure for the transparent use of networks.
The idea was formed on the grounds of TERENA (Trans-European Research and Education Networking Association).

Eduroam’s aim is to connect the networks of all participants, allowing a user of one network to connect to any other network under his/her account (maintained in his/her home network). The result is as easy to use as mobile roaming.

From a technical perspective, participants are registered via RADIUS servers. In the Czech Republic
the project runs under the auspices of the CESNET association, which has been involved in the project from the very beginning as a coordinator and promoter of activities related to computer roaming in the Czech Republic and other European countries (Portugal, UK, Belgium, France, Germany, Croatia, Hungary and Poland). The logo of the project is the work of the well-known Czech author Pavel Satrapa. Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Canada, Taiwan and the USA are also involved in the network
in addition to Europe.
