Immigration WiFi

BY PHILIPPE HANSET
@ VOL 23 ON MAY 11, 2017

University of Tennessee Knoxville was the first University in the world to have a campus wide Wireless Network back in 2001. Later, UTK innovated again by spearheading the eduroam project in the US which allows users to roam freely on Wi-Fi networks around the world. These unique projects have helped Philippe Hanset make a name for himself in the Wi-Fi world but also navigate the complex meanders of the US immigration system and eventually obtain a permanent residency. Not all immigrants have it that easy.
