All norwegian universities and most colleges are using it. NTNU
is monitoring <1000 devices, we (univ. of Tromso) about 400.
We have also made some more modules to NAV that will we available
int he next release (freeradius accounting from VPN, 802.1x wired

I could present the list, but at this stage I will rather ask the
NAV community... what do you want?"
You are all welcome to join the NAV community!
