Subscriber Plan Optimization
Preseem’s QoE Optimized Shaping feature uses Active Queue Management (AQM) techniques for bandwidth management, seamlessly enforcing subscriber bandwidth limits and managing streaming video and other high-bandwidth applications, while improving the quality of experience for your subscribers.
Based on the FQ-CoDel algorithm, this subscriber QoE optimization allows interactive traffic flows like VoIP, online gaming, and DNS to get through smoothly without being affected by the type of traffic or bulk flows like streaming video and large downloads.
How WISPs Enforce Subscriber Plans Matters
In the examples below, we show you how WISPs typically enforce subscriber plans, and the issues commonly associated with each approach.
Using simple queuing techniques via access points allows heavy applications, like streaming video, to negatively impact the performance of interactive applications. As a result, other users’ QoE may be negatively impacted when high-bandwidth applications are in use.
Application-Aware Traffic Management Tools
These tools require constant tweaks to adapt to changing applications, and often require arbitrary bandwidth limits. Their complexity gives rise to a high cost, and as encryption becomes more pervasive, application-aware traffic management become less effective.
Using simple queuing techniques via routers allows heavy applications to negatively impact the performance of interactive applications and other subs’ QoE. This approach is also incapable of instituting subscriber-aware policies, such as multi-site bandwidth limits.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Is FQ-CoDel?
The FlowQueue-CoDel (FQ-CoDel) algorithm is a combined packet scheduler and AQM algorithm, developed as part of the Bufferbloat-fighting community effort. It’s a result of major innovations coming out of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) in the last couple of years. More information on FQ-CoDel is available here.
