UCalgary extends eduroam Wi-Fi services to Calgary airports 


The University of Calgary, in collaboration with Calgary Airport Authority (YYC) and not-for-profit Cybera, have extended eduroam Wi-Fi services into both the YYC and Springbank Airport. UCalgary says that it is the first Canadian university to introduce eduroam—an encrypted Wi-Fi service—to an international airport. The service will enable its students, researchers, faculty, and postsecondary peers to securely connect to the eduroam network while travelling. “Offering eduroam at the YYC airport enhances the security, confidentiality and integrity of our community’s Wi-Fi connections,” says UCalgary Director of IT Security and Architecture Mark Sly. “I hope other airports take notice and move to implement eduroam to bolster Wi-Fi security for our travellers wherever they go.”
