AppleTalk

Apple Computer's proprietary telecommunications architecture and network protocol for the Macintosh computer. Based on the OSI communications model, AppleTalk is primarily used for connecting printers to the system, and as a network AppleTalk is slow (230.4 kilobits per second). Phase 2 of AppleTalk (released in 1989) supports Ethernet and Token Ring. Apple's Open Transport is replacing AppleTalk as a protocol for connecting to the Internet via TCP/IP, especially on newer PowerMacs.
