No the DELNI was a box that allowed 8(?) hosts to share a single half-duplex ethernet transceiver. It had ethernet AUI connections for the hosts, and another for plugging in a transceiver. Contention was, of course, CMSA/CD based.
I don't recall if you could operate it without a transceiver attached; as an "ethernet in a box". This might have been something another vendor supported.
