Calgary Christian School
In 2014, Calgary Christian School staff were frustrated by an aging network that led to frequent interruptions and insufficient access issues for a growing student body. CCS wanted to upgrade the quality of their hardware and transform their two campuses into user-friendly environments, which would mean upgrading to commercial hardware, expanding their Wi-Fi capacity and reliable technical support – all on a not-for-profit budget. It was a challenge we were happy to take on. We overhauled the school’s infrastructure, replacing old consumer-class hardware with corporate quality hardware. We also put a ticketing system in place that ensures fast response and resolution times, and implemented cloud-managed networking across both campuses. Further, we upgraded the school’s internal network, bolstered the strength and speed of its Wi-Fi, installed several remote backups and liaised with Palliser School Division to join their WAN and the Alberta SuperNet. The result? An IT environment that’s both user friendly and reliable. As a non-profit organization, CCS receives a discounted rate.
