WiFi access (and in particular eduroam access) is now accepted as an essential part of the wider campus experience. Not being able to connect to network resources can damage user experiences and can result in users having to use mobile 4G data connections rather than WiFi.
For this reason GÉANT are developing WiFiMon – a crowd-sourced, distributed performance monitoring and measurement service. This service not only measures availability of WiFi access but, most importantly performance of the service.
