Evan Garland

Infrastructure Administrator, SD #61
District 61 (Greater Victoria)

Evan has worked with the IT Infrastructure team in the Greater Victoria School District for 7 years. He played a key role in coordinating and implementing the roll out out of NGN for SD61 in late 2014. Since then, he has worked closely with the Ministry of Education, NGN project team, and other School Districts to expand on the initial project configuration of the Palo Alto firewalls.

When bandwidth issues arose at some schools, SD61 found that Quality of Service (QoS), or Traffic Shaping, on the Internet link became necessary. Through this process Evan discovered some important concepts and tips to share.
