About the network

Eduroam is a wireless network operated by research and education institutions that provide connectivity to users across Europe and some other continents. Users should be able to connect with their username and password “Otevřít notebook a být online” wherever the wireless network eduroam is available.

The idea originated within TERENA (Trans-European Research and Education Networking Association). Now eduroam is managed by the successor organization GÉANT. The goal is to interconnect all subscriber networks so that a user of one network can connect to any of them under their account (maintained in the home network). It means users from our school can connect to the Internet in buildings of other participants of eduroam in the Czech Republic and Europe.
