The most essential part of the Home-based Office is
its computer network. A well-designed office at home can far excel
over the traditional office.
There are obvious advantages of the home business. It helps to
eliminate or cut down on expenses that were
usually unavoidable: gasoline, dry-cleaning, formal clothing,
childcare, office rent etc. Then it gives the freedom to manage time rationally. It saves
the time spent on the road commuting to work. You can have extended
work hours, 24 x 7, if you wish. All these add up to an unbeatable
price and performance advantage over the traditional office.
If you do not have a network installed, please read the page Build Your Own Network and Ethernet LAN to learn how to build one.
Otherwise, you may want to read the page ISDN-BRI
on LAN to learn how replacing your regular telephone lines with
an ISDN line could propel you to the forefront of technology without
adding to your existing bills.
