Central idea of the UNIZG-WLAN project is setting up a unique wireless Zagreb University network, as a supplement to already existing wire local networks of individual faculties and University institutions. The objective is to provide as many users as possible with an easy access to the Internet and to improve the conditions of studies and scientific work . This objective is accomplished by facilitating mobility of the teachers and students, allowing them undisturbed (in terms of both time and space) access to information content and sources. Starting point in the realisation of this idea is our clear vision that the process of studying and scientific research is an extremely important possibility of access to educational and other information resources via the Internet, regardless of place and time.
Access to the network, services and content is allowed only to community members who have been assigned electronic identity by their home institution. Through the UNIZG-WLAN project, access to the network is implemented according to eduroam standard on the institutions, constituents of the Zagreb University (see the map).
SRCE is responsible for building and maintenance of UNIZG-WLAN wireless network which consists of central devices and wireless points distributed among the locations participating iin the service. Central devices fully manage the wireless points, monitor them and upgrade the software. Besides, they assign IP addresses and take care about their identification and monitoring of their activities. The institution participating in the service is obliged to purchase necessary equipment for wireless points. This equipment has to be compatible with the central device and must join the wireless points to its local network. The service has limited capacity of gathering new institutions and does not have a defined quality. To the best of its abilities, SRCE will try to ensure the highest quality of the service, but shall not be responsible in case the service is not accessibile.
