11. Advantages of a client server work network

Given the business scenario in the previous page these are some of the potential advantages of the suggested solution:

Advantages of work network
Client-server network allows staff to store their work centrally
Dedicated leased line makes it practical to create a Wide Area Network (WAN) as well as a Local Area Network (LAN)
The WAN allows a company intranet across branches to be set up and perhaps an extranet as well.
Services such as internal email and instant messaging allows staff to communicate effectively
Staff can access the internet for (largely) work related purposes.
Archiving and backup can be carried out over the network
Operating system and software updates can be deployed remotely over the network
Staff can share heavy duty peripherals such as a colour laser printer.
Dedicated print server takes the printing load away from client computers and makes staff more productive.
