Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. ALOHAnet, also known as the ALOHA System, or simply ALOHA, was a pioneering computer networking system developed at the University of Hawaii. ALOHAnet became operational in June, 1971, providing the first public demonstration of a wireless packet data network. The ALOHAnet used a new method of medium access and experimental UHF frequencies for its operation, since frequency assignments for communications to and from a computer were not available for commercial applications in the 1970s. But even before such frequencies were assigned there were two other media available for the application of an ALOHA channel - cables and satellites.show more
