QUDIT is exploring new initiatives to expand the EDUROAM (EDUcational ROAMing) service in different sectors. Continuous negotiations are underway with a range of potential partners.
An initiative has been launched with Queensland Airport Limited (QAL), AARNet and selected QLD Universities to expand EDUROAM to QAL airports. QAL is an Australian owned, Queensland based regional airport specialist group and operates in Townsville, Gold Coast, Longreach and Mt Isa.
An agreement has been reached with the QAL Gold Coast and Townsville airports in collaboration with local university partners Southern Cross University and James Cook University.
Students and staff from eduroam participating universities can now connect to their campus networks from QAL.
Eduroam is supported in Australia by AARNet (www.aarnet.edu.au). QUDIT is working in collaboration with AARNet on EDUROAM initiatives. For more information on EDUROAM, visit the Australian eduroam website (http://www.eduroam.edu.au).
