Characterising University WLANs within Eduroam Context

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The eduroam initiative is assuming an ever growing relevance in providing a secure, worldwide roaming access within the university WLAN context. Although, several studies have focused on educational WLAN traffic characterisation, the increasing variety of devices, mobility scenarios and user applications, motivate assessing the effective use of eduroam in order to sustain consistent network planning and deployment. Based on recent WLAN traffic traces collected at the University of Minho (Portugal) and University of Vigo (Spain), this paper contributes for identifying and characterising patterns of user behaviour regarding, for instance, the location and activity sector of users.
