How to use this report

Because each wireless solution counts sessions in a slightly different way, and because each wireless device may negotiate and manage their wireless sessions differently, we recommend moving away from "sessions" as a way to count monthly usage. The new wireless system's monthly email report includes these client stats:

  • Total unique clients
  • Average # of clients per day
  • Average usage per client (GB)

Connection (session) data

"Sessions" continues to be a metric requested on libraries' DPI Annual Reports. At the end of each year, SCLS will run special "connections" (sessions) reports for the new Meraki system for each library using SCLS wireless that the library can use to fill out their DPI Annual Report. In addition to the end-of-the-year reports, SCLS has made this connection data available in a data dashboard which will be updated monthly.
