Given that this is our first semester broadcasting the eduroam at Syracuse University, I wanted to dig into how the new service was being used on campus. I really didn’t expect much, but am already impressed.  In the last two weeks, we’ve seen logged in eduroamers from:
 
US
  • Cornell
  • Brandeis
  • George Washington U
  • U of Iowa
  • U of Maryland
  • Pitt
  • Tulane
 
Canada
  • Polytechnique Montreal
  • Ryerson University, Toronto
 
UK
  • U of Edinborough, Scotland
  • Loughborough U
  • University of London
  • Cambridge
  • St. Andrew
  • Bristol
  • City U of London
 
Europe
  • U de Poiters, France
  • Telecom-Bretagne, France
  • HDM-Stuttgart, Germany
  • KTH Royal Inst of Technology, Sweden
  • U Poiters, France
  • Vienna University of Tech
  • Uppsala U, Sweden
  • Utrecht U, NL
  • Stockholm School of Economics
 
(This equals around 100 unique clients- most we’ve seen concurrent is just under 40.)
 
Though just a spit in the bucket of our 20K concurrent daily WLAN client peak, the diversity of schools on the list is pretty thought-provoking.

Thanks for sharing Lee, I've been on the fence myself re: deploying Eduroam.

That might translate into 100 less helpdesk tickets (depending on how you do guest access for visiting scholars/students), and a fair bit of man-hours saved not trying to figure out how to connect on the part of the visitors.

Lee,

I have yet to encounter a WLAN admin that wasn't intrigued by the diversity of visitors when eduroam is enabled.
And this is the low season for eduroam at the moment!
Check the graph of the US top levels at https://www.eduroam.us/node/232

If I may ask, how many non eduroam visitors do you encounter on your WLAN per day?
You mentioned 40 from eduroam, I wonder if it is representative at all in term of visitors.

Thank you for sharing those stats.

Philippe

It might well have resulted in one less call for us too. This is why we use eduroam as our primary said, stops people trying to set it up & failing when they're already away.

Thanks

Sent from my phone, please excuse brevity and misspelling.

They are 100 very happy students/researchers.  They were able to hit the ground running rather than wait for their departmental sponsor to figure out how to enable network access, create accounts, or whatever your internal requirements for visitors have been in the past.

 

Wait until you visit another country where data roaming rates typically make network access too expensive.  If you happen to be at a university – you are good to go.  I even used it while on vacation from a park bench (checking back on work email of course;-)    Membership has its privileges!   

 

Great stuff.

Same here. Using eduroam as our primary has been great so far.

Just to add to the thread. We went live campus wide on January 1, 2014. As we are averaging only about 385 associated clients this month, I think our eduroam rollout has been a success. @univ-paris-diderot.fr @carleton.edu @uvic.ca @princeton.edu @uchicago.edu @anu.edu @oeaw.ac.at @cornell.edu @hku.hk @ubc.ca @wisc.edu @dur.ac.uk @durham.ac.uk @uva.nl @utoronto.ca -- Christina Klam Network Engineer Institute for Advanced Study Email: cklam@ias.edu Einstein Drive Telephone: 609-734-8154 Princeton, NJ 08540 Fax: 609-951-4418 ********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.
