Ring topology

Token Ring or IEEE 802.5 is a network where all computers are connected in a circular fashion. The term token is used to describe a segment of information that is sent through that circle; when a computer on the network can decode that token, it receives data. The token ring is used by ARCNET, token bus and FDDI. Today, 802.5 and token ring are considered inactive.
