Tap and Transceiver
Thanks Ken Pier and Tracy Kugelman of Palo Alto Research Center for this donation!
From what I was told on my visit to PARC on June 19, 2003, Ken Pier (who joined Xerox PARC in 1976) relayed that these Ethernet taps (drops) and transceivers were being taken out of the ceiling at PARC. Ken noted that these were not the original Ethernet taps, those were cream colored and connected the all-Alto network (with devices like the Dover laser printer).
More here soon about this artifact!
