In fact, I’d like to take a moment to amplify and extend his recommendations based upon my work situation. Most of the things that I’d like to highlight reflect the difference between the occasional teleworker and the full-time home-office dweller.
As someone who has worked from a home office for over a decade I truly appreciate anything that helps traditional companies and managers to evolve around the reality of a distributed workforce. From network infrastructure to managing personalities from a distance, it can be a challenge. We need to encourage our superiors to continue to examine, and possibly embrace, all things new and different.
There’s a forum over at www.broadbandreports.com where people post photos and drawings of their home and home-office networks. Some people have some really simple setups, while others have truly sophisticated installations.
I’m sure ours is somewhere in the middle. I posted a drawing over there so I suppose that it only makes sense to post it here as well.
