EDUROAM celebrates one billion roaming authentications
On 17 May 2016, eduroam clocked up two amazing milestones – registering both one billion roaming authentications (either in-country or international) since the beginning of the year and the one billionth international authentication (when users are connecting from outside their home country) since the service was launched.
Born in Europe in 2003, eduroam operates now in 76 countries on all continents (including Armenia) and experienced an average 80 % annual growth over the last 5 years.

eduroam is part of the EU-funded GÉANT research and education project and it is a key IT enabler for supporting the mobility of researchers and students inside country, Europe and globally.
