zero-slot LAN

zero-slot LAN
   Alocal-areanetworkthat uses one of the existing serial or parallel ports on the computer rather than a special network interface card plugged in to the computer's expansion bus.
   Because zero-slot LANs can only transmit as fast as the computer's output port, they are considerably slower than networks that use network-specific hardware and software. The maximum length of each cable segment is also severely limited, so zero-slot LANs can network only two or three computers. The advantage of a zero-slot LAN is its low cost compared with dedicated network systems.
   See also peer-to-peer network.
