eduroam in the NHS Case Study - Weston Area Health NHS Trust with Bristol University

24 October 2013 at 3:16pm

This case study describes a pilot implementation of eduroam at Weston General Hospital.

This is the first example of the eduroam footprint being extended to an NHS Trust without using a direct Trust to University network connection. Instead the authentication messages are initially channelled via the N3 Janet Gateway to the University of Bristol radius server which then handles further authentications on behalf of the NHS Trust. The NHS Trust provides the internet connectivity for the authenticated eduroam users.

Thank you to Martin Van Eker for providing this case study through the NHS-HE Connectivity Best Practice Working Group
