Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. PhoneNet was an implementation of the AppleTalk networking physical layer created by Farallon Computing. Instead of using expensive shielded twisted pair wiring as in Apple's LocalTalk implementation, PhoneNet uses standard four-conductor telephone patch cords and modular connectors. Like LocalTalk, the theoretical maximum speed for data transfer was 230 kbps, and it is generally used in a daisy chain topology. Unlike LocalTalk's balanced and grounded implementation, PhoneNet used only two lines of the four in a typical cable. As normal telephone equipment also normally used only two lines, PhoneNet could be plugged into existing phone lines in some instances, allowing both phone calls and networking over a single cable.show more
