Definition: LocalTalk

An earlier LAN access method from Apple that used twisted pair wires and transmitted at 230,400 bps. It ran under AppleTalk and used a daisy chain topology that could connect up to 32 devices within a distance of 1,000 feet. Third party products allowed it to hook up with bus, passive star and active star topologies. Apple's LocalTalk PC Card let a PC gain access to an AppleTalk network. See LAP.
