SOHO is short for Small Office Home Office. This refers to a small network, like you would have in an office at home, or in a very small business.
The typical characteristics of this network include:
- A single and relatively cheap internet connection
- An internet router with a Wireless Access Point and switch built in
- A printer, which may be wirelessly connected, or wired
- A small number of PCs, usually less than five
- A few wireless devices, including items like smart phones and tablets
It’s becoming more common to see things like TVs and home automation equipment being connected to a SOHO network.
