About WiFI

WiFi (wireless local area network) is a technology that allows electronic devices to connect to a wireless LAN (WLAN) network. Devices which can use WiFi technology include personal computers, video-game consoles, smartphones, digital cameras, tablet computers and digital audio players. Wi-Fi compatible devices can connect to the Internet via a WLAN network and a wireless access point (or hotspot).

Eduroam stands for Education Roaming and is a service allowing users of participating institutions to access the Internet at other participants using their home institution's credentials. This way an administration of access to the network and applications is reduced and the mobility of users is increased.
