Benefit of being an eduroam service provider (SP)?

An institution which is not an AARNet customer is eligible to participate in eduroam AU in an SP-only role.

The overall business case for joining eduroam AU as an SP-only is a matter for the institution, however there may be significant benefit to joining eduroam AU to enable university students or staff visiting your institution, e.g. to undertake or deliver education or research, or to acquire information, to access your network via eduroam.

The cost of eduroam participation include that associated with sustainably operating the local eduroam infrastructure (wireless, networking, RADIUS server), providing support, creating a local eduroam informational webpage, and providing network access to visitors.
