Preseem Can Help
Preseem helps WISPs to manage the 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.
Preseem’s application-agnostic traffic management handles this change in application use automatically, without the need for protocol updates or rule changes!
This means that the kids at home watching Netflix won’t destroy that important conference call.
Overloaded Access Points
With more people at home, it is 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.
Preseem can apply bandwidth limits on a per-AP basis to mitigate the impacts of overloaded access points. This keeps the AP below the pain point, maintains low latency, and shares bandwidth fairly across subscribers.
Don’t let an overloaded access point cause your new telecommuters pain.

"Despite more people staying at home and using Internet, given demands for self-isolation, the enormous majority of our network is massively underutilized. This is where Preseem really shines! We can see the 'health' of every AP and proactively identify problematic APs. Also, Preseem's FQ-CoDel maintains data efficiency. With the help from Preseem, we can easily manage the marginally higher demand network-wide"
