    eduroam network project

    Hi,

    I'm assisting with a school project where the facility is future-proof and thus they decided not to have ANY wired network connections. Instead they have facility wide eduroam network.

    Now, the place has bought a metric-a** ton of wired devices and they need to connect them to the eduroam network.

    I've been reading through online papers of what access point would be the best (plan is to have 8x-16x wired devices per room into a switch and a switch via an access point to the eduroam network) but apart from seeing WPA2 enterprise credentials, I didn't see much in terms of recommended hardware.

    Anybody would have any experience with eduroam, please?

    I will ask a friend who can ask a friend what they use for eduroam access points. All I know is they are Aruba ones.

    I have been told that they have recently been using Aruba 510's (exact model APIN515)

    https://www.arubanetworks.com/produc...ts/510-series/

    They look like they maybe a bit overkill for just a few computers in a lab and they are more for serving students and staff on their mobile devices.

    Just over £1000 each it seems.

    Well hopefully that will give you a starting point.
