Preseem Fixed Wireless Network Report 2018

At Preseem, our commitment to the fixed wireless industry is bigger than just delivering a great QoE monitoring and optimization platform. For us, it’s about using data to bring transparency to the industry. In this way, we can help WISPs make the best decisions to improve their network and have happier customers.

The Fixed Wireless Network Report 2018 uses Preseem’s data set to provide a view into fixed wireless networks across providers and different kinds of equipment. It was officially released on the first day of WISPAPALOOZA 2018 during our QoE Seminar.

Preseem ingests over 5 billion metrics every day from tens of thousands of fixed wireless subscribers and thousands of APs. It’s our hope that this information can help WISPs benchmark their businesses against the wider broadband ecosystem. We also hope it helps others understand fixed wireless networks.
