Eduroam

The eduroam network enables WLAN / Wifi users to access the network infrastructure of other universities as well as services on the Internet without restrictions. For this purpose, users with an account from University A are allowed to log on to the network of University B with this account, as long as both universities participate in roaming. This means that guests from other universities can use the WLAN / Wifi (eduroam) at Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg.

OvGU-802.1X

The wireless network "OvGU-802.1X" enables users to access the campus network as well as TCP-based services (e.g. Web/Mail) in the Internet from the WLAN without having to install additional software. In modern operating systems, support for 802.1X technology is often already built in, so that access only needs to be configured accordingly.
