Jump to user comments
networking (From the Hawaiian greeting) One of the first
functioning networks in the USA, conceived and implimented
at the University of Hawaii campus at Manoa. Its purpose
was to link the University mainframe computer to client
computers located on outer islands at University campuses.
Put in place in the early 1970s, it was dubed the Aloha Net.
Key punch cards were fed through a reader, and sent over the
commercial phone lines.
