Visualising roaming within eduroam

Ongoing monitoring of the JANET Roaming Service (JRS, the UK instance of eduroam) has been hampered by a lack of visualisation tools.

This paper will describe a three-dimensional, interactive visual representation of eduroam log data from the JRS that gives a comprehensive overview of JRS roaming in the UK. The software is open source and available for adoption by other NRENS.

This paper will also address future developments of eduroam such as RADSEC which will reduce the visibility of monitoring data at the core. We propose the use of IF-MAP as a roaming data publication route.
