    In the begining wireless networks were convenient but now they are mission critical. Eduroam wireless network was launched in 2003. It enabled mobility in academic and educational sphere. At the begining Eduroam covered small parts of faculties and schools, but it evolved and is now covering large campuses and student dorms. Large wireless networks bring new challenges for their maintainers. For efficient control and provisioning of wireless access points a new solution was needed. In this thesis we presented centralized wireless architecture as the solution. We set up a test Eduroam lab with equipment for centralized wireless network management. We evaluated usability and recommended possible use cases of equipment for centralized management in Eduroam wireless network. We also tested security and compared it to autonomous Eduroam networks.
