Access Point Optimization
Given Preseem’s understanding of your wireless network topology, Preseem can implement advanced Active Queue Management (AQM) based QoE optimization at the access point level. This ensures that all customers get good Internet experience even if the demand on the access point is over its capacity.
Subscriber Plan Optimization
Preseem further uses AQM techniques to enforce subscriber bandwidth limits and to manage streaming video and other high-bandwidth applications while improving your subscriber QoE. Preseem’s subscriber QoE optimization, based on FQ-CoDel, allows interactive flows like VoIP, gaming & DNS to get through smoothly without being affected by bulk flows like streaming video and large Windows downloads.
"Preseem’s platform takes all the guesswork out of traffic shaping, it just works!"- Mark Petrocchi, CTO, AlignTec (WISP from Durango, CO)
Almost All WISPs Enforce Subscriber Plans.
How That’s Done Matters. A Lot.
Typically done in
Can lead to issues like
These tools use simple queuing techniques which allow heavy applications like streaming video to negatively impact the performance of interactive applications or other users.
– Use simple queuing techniques which allow heavy applications like streaming video to negatively impact the performance of interactive applications or other users – Incapable of subscriber-aware policies such as multi-site bandwidth limits.
Application-aware Traffic Management Tools
– Require constant tweaks to adapt to changing application – Declining utility due to increasing amount of encrypted traffic – High cost due to inherent complexity – Often requires arbitrarily selected bandwidth limits
Optimizing QoE Makes All the Difference
Preseem’s QoE Optimized Shaping for access points & subscribers makes your wireless network more efficient, effective & profitable
Preseem automatically shapes bulk flows like Netflix to make room for interactive flows like VoIP and Gaming to go through. This takes care of any lag, buffering or internet-feeling-slow issues for your subscribers, especially when someone in the house is doing a bulk download or HD streaming.
Per-flow fairness and optimization ensure that multiple users in the household can use the allocated bandwidth in an optimum manner for everything from streaming video to VoIP calls while getting a good QoE. This reduces the number of support calls and costs associated with your technician’s valuable time and field visits.
Preseem’s AQM techniques, per-flow prioritization, and access point-level bandwidth management solutions allow better link utilization and help you delay costly network investments. You can also save on the unnecessary purchase of additional bandwidth to fix access point congestion and ‘internet-feeling-slow’ problems.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Learn more about Preseem’s QoE optimized shaping or contact us if you have any questions.
What is FQ-CoDel?
The FlowQueue-CoDel (FQ-CoDel) algorithm is a combined packet scheduler and Active Queue Management (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 details and technical information is available here.
Does Preseem do L7 inspection?
No, Preseem does not do layer 7 inspection. Preseem leverages advanced active queue management (AQM) techniques to improve deliver a great subscriber experience even in the presence of congestion without the complexity and cost associated with layer 7 inspection.
