-- About Token Ring --

Token Ring is a networking technology that uses a token to pass information around the network. A network using Token Ring is configured in a ring topology where each computer or node is connected to it's neighbors to the left and right. This forms a logical ring and allows the token to be passed from one computer to the next. Computers with something to transmit over the network must wait for possession of the token to send the information. Token Ring techology was popularized in the mid 1980's by IBM but has since become rarely used. The token ring technology is shared by ARCNET, token bus, and Fiber Distributed Data Interface, or FDDI. Ethernet has become the worlds main networking technology since it offered faster transmission speeds and cheaper equipment.
