geant 4G + eduroam: Opportunity for NRENs

Mobile communication is playing an increasingly important role in the higher education and research sector. Unrestricted, fast, uninterrupted access to the Internet is hugely important in new approaches to working and learning. In this session we show the progress of two mobile related projects: - The SURFnet LTE (4G) pilot; main question is how the LTE network can be integrated with eduroam WiFi-networks in such way that the end users experience seamless connectivity. Furthermore, the added value of 4G/LTE for R&E is researched. - Progress in G√ČANT Mobile Connectivity Feasibility Study, which researches the feasibility and business case for a Pan-European mobile data service.
