eduroam(tm) expands in Japan

RADIUS based authentication roaming federation eduroam(tm) expands in Japan according to Terena's translated news item. The expansion is done in cooperation between the Japanese National Institute of Informatics (NII) and Livedoor, a Japanese provider of commercial WLAN services.

These kind of cooperation announcements give additional validation to Arch Red's vision on utilising eduroam(tm) tried technology to increase community network coverage through roaming instead of building overlapping Wi-Fi networks or trying to form only one dominating one.
