Preseem Can Help
Preseem is helping WISPs manage increased usage and network load during these trying times, while continuing to deliver a better experience to subscribers.
How COVID-19 Impacts WISPs
Change in Applications
Social distancing has led to more people working from home, which has driven a change in the types of applications that people use. Specifically, the number of collaborative applications, such as those for video conferencing, will increase both in usage and variety.
Overloaded Access Points
With more people at home due to COVID, it’s possible that some of your APs will be pushed beyond their limits. When this happens, the customer experience for all subscribers on the AP suffers due to the simple queueing algorithms in the AP hardware.

We use advanced Active Queue Management (AQM) techniques to enforce subscriber and AP bandwidth limits and to manage streaming video and other high-bandwidth applications while improving subscriber QoE.
• No complex rules • No need for artificial limits • Zero application restrictions
"Despite more people staying at home and using the Internet during the day, the majority of our network is underutilized. This is where Preseem really shines! We can see the health of every AP and proactively identify problematic APs. Also, Preseem's use of FQ-CoDel maintains data efficiency. Thanks to Preseem, we can easily manage the higher demand network-wide"
