Protocol within DECnet for the exchange of small packets of data between Digital Equipment hosts and terminal servers in a LAN environment.
A communications protocol that lets terminal emulators access VMS systems over Ethernet.

Local Area Transport (LAT) is a non-routable networking technology developed by Digital Equipment Corporation to provide connection between the DECserver 90, 100, 200, 300, 700 and DECserver 900 terminal servers and Digital's VAX and Alpha host computers via Ethernet, giving communication between those hosts and serial devices such as video terminals and printers. The protocol itself was designed in such a manner as to maximize packet efficiency over ethernet by bundling multiple characters from multiple ports into a single packet for Ethernet transport. Over time, other host implementations of the LAT protocol appeared allowing communications to a wide range of Unix and other non-Digital operating systems using the LAT protocol.
