Wifi usage 2015-16

The wifi service at Birkbeck is delivered via eduroam. eduroam allows Birkbeck users to connect to the wifi networks of other organisations participating in eduroam, and of course users from those organisations to use the Birkbeck wifi.

In the figures below, a roaming user is connecting to eduroam away from Birkbeck (ie on someone else's wifi network). The figures for UCL, SOAS etc are users from those institutions using Birkbeck's wifi.
