IEEE Milestone: ALOHAnet Celebration, Tuesday October 13th

Demonstration of the ALOHA Packet Radio Data Network, 1971
In June 1971, the ALOHA packet radio data network began providing inter-island access to computing facilities at the University of Hawaii. ALOHAnet was the first to demonstrate that communication channels could be effectively and efficiently shared on a large scale using simple random access protocols. It led directly to the development of Ethernet and personal wireless communication technologies.
