How to use this report

Because each wireless solution counts sessions in a slightly different way, and because each wireless device may negiotate 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)

SCLS will run special reports of "sessions" for each library using SCLS wireless and automatically populate this information in each library's DPI Annual Report.
