Secure Wi-Fi Roaming with eduroam

Link Oregon is the designated Support Organization for K-12 schools, museums and libraries in Oregon for eduroam —a federated Wi-fi roaming service offered by Internet2, a national Research & Education Network (REN). With eduroam, your K-12 students and faculty can use participating eduroam libraries, community colleges or any university campuses that are part of the eduroam network to securely log on using their home school credentials.  We offer eduroam to all our K-12 member institutions.

DDoS attacks are getting increasingly sophisticated, posing significant threats to educational institutions and resulting in student downtime, data vulnerabilities, loss of productivity, and in the worst scenarios, even severe institutional reputation harm. Our Premium Internet Transit Service includes DDoS detection and mitigation capabilities for both volumetric and protocol-based attacks, averting threats so services can run uninterrupted. Members are proactively kept informed of status until the issue is resolved.

Cloud Connectivity

Many K-12 ESDs rely on cloud infrastructure for data storage, backup and to deploy and host custom applications. We offer fast and private cloud connections to leading cloud infrastructure platforms, including Amazon’s AWS Direct Connect, Google Cloud Partner Interconnect, Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute and Oracle Fast Connect via the Internet2 Cloud Connect (I2CC) service.

“The services that Lane ESD receives from Link Oregon have been incredibly reliable and very cost effective. In the instances that we have needed help, the Operations Center, engineers, and staff at Link Oregon have quickly responded, addressing the trouble or question. The constant communication and updates around maintenance activities provides a level of transparency not often seen with service providers today.”
