Academic and secure Wi-Fi reaches metro, train and bus stations in the most populous city in Latin America

A university student who wants to watch a video lecture, a researcher who needs to finish a paper or a professor who is correcting tests at the end of the semester can now connect to the wireless internet network, secure and dedicated to the academic community, eduroam, also at stations by metro, train and bus from the city of São Paulo, in Brazil. The network, operated in the country by its national research and education network, RNP, was activated in 65 new locations in the most populous city in Latin America.

The novelty is part of a process to expand the availability of the eduroam signal in public environments with large circulation of people, beyond the walls of the 178 teaching and research institutions that use the service, where the academic community could already connect. With the capillarity work, the Brazilian eduroam network became the largest in the world in terms of number of access points. Currently, there are around 3,500 spread throughout the national territory.

How to connect to an eduroam network?

Members of the academic community linked to institutions that use the service can connect to the secure internet anywhere that has eduroam access points. For this, the user needs to authenticate the credentials with eduroam configured on their computer, cell phone or tablet. Once connected with login and password, the wireless network connection happens automatically. In Brazil, to be a teaching and research institution providing the service, the only requirement is to be approved by the Federated Academic Community (CAFe).
