Troubleshoot A Variety of Issues

Preseem’s Wireless Summary is trusted by hundreds of WISP owners and network managers to not only find but also troubleshoot numerous network issues, such as:

  • Congestion due to overloading
  • Reduced capacity due to interference
  • Poor signal strength to the end user, causing lower throughput for the entire sector
  • Backhaul/transit congestion affecting APs
  • Reduced capacity due to bad weather
  • MicroPOPs overloading an AP
  • Plan enforcement shapers adding high latency
  • High latency due to subscribers with connectivity issues

“Preseem has been an invaluable tool in providing insights into our network’s true performance levels and end-user quality experience. Since implementing Preseem, we have uncovered issues that other tools, like ping and SNMP, did not alert us to with the same impact. The Preseem interface clearly shows you a full picture of performance, not parts of it.”

Real-world AP performance doesn’t always match the vendor’s marketing numbers. That is why Preseem collects data from tens of thousands of APs every day so that you can see how your APs perform relative to your peers.

Preseem overlays key performance metrics of individual AP models, allowing for easy identification of under-performing or overloaded APs.

“One of the most interesting metrics Preseem has brought to the table is visibility into the performance of our APs. This has allowed us to compare our AP performance against the global average performance of the same AP model and configuration as deployed by other users. This has helped us understand how hard we are pushing our gear, and highlighted areas where we had to perform additional tuning in order to maximize throughput and minimize latency.”

KPI 1: Latency (ms)

The Latency Metric helps you understand and compare the latency experienced by subscribers on each of your APs during the busiest hours of the day. For each subscriber, we capture hundreds of samples of TCP latency per second. Notably, we measure latency between Preseem and the subscriber. Thus, this metric represents the minimum achievable latency as the ‘Internet-side’ latency is dependent on the path to the remote peer. After collecting latency metrics for each minute of the day, we choose the 80th percentile of latency samples from the top 10% of the highest demand minutes. Note that demand is the number of active subscribers multiplied by the throughput.

KPI 2: Active Subscribers

The Active Subscriber Count Metric helps you understand how many subscribers are active on a given AP during the busiest hours of the day. This helps compare the load across sectors for network planning purposes and how many users are currently active vs. inactive. To be considered active during a particular minute, the subscriber must have the equivalent of 20 Kbps of traffic for the minute. After counting the number of active subscribers for each minute of the day, we choose the 50th percentile of active subscriber count from the top 10% of the highest demand minutes. Note that demand is the number of active subscribers multiplied by the throughput.

KPIs 3 & 4: Downstream & Upstream (Mbps)

The Download Rate Metric helps you understand and compare the throughput of your APs during the busiest hours of the day. It includes all of the traffic on the AP, whether or not the subscriber is known or identified to Preseem. After collecting the download rate for each minute of the day, we choose the 80th percentile of the download rate from the top 10% of the highest demand minutes. Note that demand is the number of active subscribers multiplied by the throughput.

The Upload Rate Metric helps you understand and compare the throughput of your APs during the busiest hours. It includes all of the traffic on the AP, whether the subscriber is known or not. After collecting the upload rate for each minute of the day, we choose the 80th percentile of the upload rate from the top 10% of the highest demand minutes. Note that demand is the number of active subscribers multiplied by the throughput.

KPIs 5 & 6: Subscriber Downstream & Upstream

The Subscriber Download Rate Metric helps you understand the typical download throughput achieved by the subscribers on a given AP during the busiest hours. This provides insight into whether or not an AP delivers enough bandwidth to meet your business goals or customer expectations. Only subscribers which data usage equivalent to 20 Kbps are counted as active. After calculating the download rate for every subscriber for every minute of the day, we take the 80th percentile of the subscribers’ download rate from the top 10% of the highest demand minutes. Note that demand is the number of active subscribers multiplied by the throughput.

The Subscriber Upload Rate Metric helps you understand the typical upload throughput achieved by the subscribers on a given AP during the busiest hours. This provides insight into whether or not an AP delivers enough bandwidth to meet your business goals or customer expectations. Only subscribers which data usage equivalent to 20 Kbps are counted as active. After calculating the upload rate for every subscriber for every minute of the day, we take the 80th percentile of the subscribers’ upload rate from the top 10% of the highest demand minutes. Note that demand is the number of active subscribers multiplied by the throughput.
