The University of Edinburgh is a member of the JANET Roaming Service (JRS) which in turn is a member of the eduroam federation.
The eduroam service provided by JANET in the UK is a federated service that enables JANET connected organisations to offer high quality secure network services for visitors from other eduroam-enabled organisations, without the need for guest account management.
The eduroam service in Europe is a confederated service, provided through the collaboration of national-level federations, including the JANET Roaming Service. This allows users to connect to the eduroam service at institutions throughout Europe as they would at their home institution.
There are also eduroam federations in the Asia-Pacific region, Canada and the USA.
