The network- & transport-level protocols include Datagram Delivery Protocol (DDP) AppleTalk Transaction Protocol (ATP) AppleTalk Session Protocol (ASP) & the Name Binding Protocol (NBP)
networking: Apple's set of rules governing how Macs communicate between themselves and other computers and peripherals. Often inaccurately used in reference to the cables which Apple sells to connect Macs together; these are actually called LocalTalk.
a networking protocol developed by Apple Computer for communication between Apple's products and other computers. Independent of the network layer, AppleTalk runs on LocalTalk, EtherTalk and TokenTalk.
The term "AppleTalk" refers to both "AppleTalk Network System" and "AppleTalk Protocol". AppleTalk Network System refers to a network system for connecting multiple Macintosh computers, and it consists of hardware such as cables and connectors and software (communications protocol). The protocol has been developed by Apple and it comes standard with MacOS. AppleTalk protocol is the communications protocol used on an AppleTalk network system.
An inexpensive local-area network (LAN) architecture built into all Apple Macintosh computers and laser printers. AppleTalk supports Apple's LocalTalk cabling scheme, as well as Ethernet and IBM Token Ring. It can connect Macintosh computers and printers, and even PCs if they are equipped with special AppleTalk hardware and software
A comprehensive network system developed by Apple that runs on a variety of cable systems and protocols. It facilitates communication between network devices, such as computers, file servers, and printers, which may be a mixture of Apple and non-Apple products. Several elements make up an AppleTalk network system-AppleTalk software and AppleTalk hardware; the latter includes computing components and connectivity components. AppleTalk's design allows the inclusion of a variety of data-link and cabling methods in a network system. Data-link and cabling methods widely used include LocalTalk, EtherTalk using standard Ethernet media, and TokenTalk using token ring media.
The networking protocol suite developed by Apple Computers. It provides peer-to-peer networking capabilities between all Macintoshes and Apple hardware. AppleTalk capability is automatically built into every Macintosh.
A networking protocol developed by Apple Computers for communication between Apple Computer products, eg the Mac PC, and other computers. This protocol is independent of the network layer on which it is run. Implementations exist for Localtalk (a 235Kb/s LAN) and Ethertalk (a 10Mb/s LAN). See also Local Area Network.
Apple Computer's protocol suite including LocalTalk, EtherTalk, and TokenTalk. LocalTalk is the 230.4-kilobitper-second media-access method Apple developed for use with the Macintosh. EtherTalk and TokenTalk are Apple's communication protocols-such as AppleTalk Printer Services (ATPS) and AppleTalk File Protocol (AFP~--using the Ethernet 802.3 and 802.5 standards, respectively. See 802.X.
The Mac's built-in networking software, and the associated protocols. Networks using the protocols are referred to as AppleTalk networks, while the cabling is called LocalTalk. When Apple Talk is be routed over ethernet cable, as it is in the labs, it is know as EtherTalk.
A communications protocol developed by Apple Computer to allow networking between Macintoshes. All Macintosh computers have a LocalTalk port, running AppleTalk over a 230K bps serial line. AppleTalk also runs over Ethernet (EtherTalk) and Token Ring (TokenTalk) network media.
A networking protocol developed by Apple Computer for communication between Apple Computer products and other computers. This protocol is independent of what network it is layered on. Current implementations exist for LocalTalk (235 Kbps) and EtherTalk (10 Mbps).
It is used by networks to talk. It was developed by Macintosh computers and can be used on Apple and non-Apple computers to communicate and share resources such as printers and file servers. Specific hardware and software is required for Non-Apple computers. It's protocol is similar to the ISO/OSI reference model.
A series of related communications protocols introduced and maintained by Apple Computer, Inc. Two phases currently exist: Phase I and Phase II. Phase II, which includes support for internetworks, is the most recent version. Phase II is the version running at the University of Chicago.
A seven-layer protocol stack designed by Apple Computers that allows the sharing of files and printers and the sending of traffic between computers. Its primary design goal was to give the AppleTalk user a simple plug-and-play environment in which the user does not need to be concerned with the details of network configuration.
networking scheme (or protocol) developed by Apple allowing Macs to share a printer or network resources; runs 230 Kilobits per second on non-coax cable. AppleTalk is the network language, LocalTalk is the actual cabling joining the computers. AppleTalk has certain advantages of simplicity, with compromises in speed.
the networking protocol developed by Apple, allowing computers to talk with other computers and with printers; AppleTalk is the set of conventions by which files are communicated, with various gatekeeping functions and end-of-file signals. A different protocol, TCP/IP, operates on other networks (like UCDNet), but translator boxes allow AppleTalk to operate over the same hook-ups.
n. An inexpensive local area network developed by Apple that can be used by Apple and non-Apple computers to communicate and share resources such as printers and file servers. Non-Apple computers must be equipped with AppleTalk hardware and suitable software. The network uses a layered set of protocols similar to the ISO/OSI model and transfers information in the form of packets called frames. AppleTalk supports connections to other AppleTalk networks through devices known as bridges, and it supports connections to dissimilar networks through devices called gateways. See also bridge, frame (definition 2), gateway.
A networking protocol developed by Apple Computer for communication between Apple Computer products and other computers. This protocol is independent of the network layer on which it is run. Current implementations exist for Localtalk, a 235Kb/s local area network; and Ethertalk, a 10Mb/s local area network. [Source: NNSC
AppleTalk is a set of protocols which govern a network of Apple computers. AppleTalk is specific to Apple computers, as opposed to TCP/IP, a platform-independent protocol which provides the foundation for the Internet and for many local area networks. Source: TechSoup.org
Apple Computer's set of specifications for connecting computers and other devices to share information over LANs. It describes network hardware, software, and protocols and lets an assortment of Mac and non-Mac devices communicate over a variety of transceivers and communications media.
The Apple networking protocol used to connect Macintosh computers with each other, or with shared devices. AppleTalk, with the appropriate interface card, can also be used to connect to DOS-based platform computers.
A seven-layer protocol stack developed by Apple for communications among its Apple Macintosh product range. Apple defines it in similar terms to the functionality of the seven-layer OSI (Open Systems Interconnection) model.
Communications protocol developed by Apple computers. Although fairly slow, AppleTalk is cheap to implement on Macintosh computer because the hardware for it is built into the machines. Using special adaptor boards, IBM PC and compatible machines can also be incorporated into an AppleTalk network. The AppleTalk protocol can also be run over ethernet, though it is then called EtherTalk.
A layered networking protocol developed by Apple Computer that uses a datagram format for communication between Apple Computer products and other computers. This protocol is independent of the network layer on which it is run.
The Apple Computer network architecture and network protocols. A network that has Macintosh clients and a computer running Windows 2000 Server or Windows NT Server with Services for Macintosh functions as an AppleTalk network.
