The Telecommunications Institute is covered by a wireless network, thus allowing transparent and fast access to the network and the Internet.
Two networks are available, whose names (SSID) are IT-Coimbra and EDUROAM. The IT-Coimbra network has local addressing common to the wired IT network, allowing access to the resources there (for example, printers). The EDUROAM network is integrated into the European network, so it only allows access to the Internet and not to local resources. Both are configured in the same way, which will be described below.
Regarding technical specifications, the definitions to be used for network access are as follows:
