I believe that RFC 2549 (IP over Avian Carriers with Quality of Service)
<http://www.rfc-archive.org/getrfc.php?rfc=2549> fits the description. It is
a networking protocol without any wires. It does, howerver, use feathers.
I'm a little doubtful as to whether this was the system referred to, since, as
to the best of my knowledge, it has only been implemented once. You can read
the write-up here: http://www.blug.linux.no/rfc1149/ and here
Hope that helps,
