The overall purpose of the training is to get Eduroam up and running in more locations throughout Armenia and to make sure that ASNET-AM feel confident and comfortable in providing and supporting the service to their community.
Connecting Armenian researchers and educators to eduroam is one of the key priorities for ASNET-AM. Eduroam (Educaton Roaming) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service that allows students, researchers and staff to seamlessly access internet connectivity when within range of a hotspot, whether they're moving across campus or visiting other participating institutions. Eduroam is available in thousands of locatons across over 70 countries worldwide. ASNET-AM supports Eduroam service in Armenia.
To facilitate and speed up the eduroam uptake process, a knowledge transfer was arranged between GÉANT Project experts and ASNET-AM through Expert Scheme by Learning and Development team. In this instance, the expertise is provided by the GÉANT Project SA2: Trust and Identity, and Multi Domain Services and its CARNet/SRCE (Croatia) and AMRES (Serbia) contributors in particular.
