The WLAN service provides a university-wide WLAN infrastructure. WLAN-capable end devices are thus enabled to communicate wirelessly.

The WLAN transmitters are the university's WLAN access points. The access points (and the infrastructure behind them) offer the WLAN service and the end devices accept the WLAN service.

The WLAN access points transmit or broadcast one or more SSIDs (service set identifier, technical jargon for "name of the data network"). End devices can connect to one or more of these SSIDs and thus gain Internet access. Connection is only possible if, depending on the SSID, one has the corresponding authorization. This is negotiated between the WLAN infrastructure and the respective end device using an authentication procedure.
