Apple talk

Apple talk is the protocol suite/stack native to the Macintosh operating system.

It refers to a networking capability that is built into all Macintosh computers and can be used on twisted-pair wiring, coaxial cable, or fiber-optic cable, although it is most commonly used on twisted-pair. Apple talk is much slower than a Ethernet or token-ring network, with a top speed of 230 Kbps.
