A local area network (LAN) topology in which the medium forms a loop to which workstations are attached. Data is transmitted in a simplex form from one station, normally employing a token-passing. - RJ # connector. A four-wire modular connector used for telephone and modem connection. RJ-45 is the larger 8-wire modular connector used for 10BaseT Ethernet.
A network cabling configuration in which each system is connected in a series, forming a closed loop.
In a ring topology, the network nodes are connected in a closed loop. Information is passed sequentially between active stations, and each one examines or copies the data and finally returns it to the originating station, which removes it from the network.
The physical layout of a local network in which all nodes are attached in a circle, without a central host computer.
A network topology in which nodes are connected to a closed loop. no terminators are required because there are no connected ends.
A network where signals are transmitted from one station and relayed through each subsequent station in the network.
Ring Topology is a network topology in which each node is connected to two other nodes by point-to-point links in a closed loop (ring). In ring topology, signal that is transmitted by a sending node travels in one direction around the ring, from node to node. Each node should recognize its own address and other nodes' addresses to process the signal or retransmit it to the next node. Token Ring network is implemented using ring topology. See picture. Also see bus, star, and mesh topologies.
A way of organizing computers in a network such that each node has one predecessor, whom it receives messages from, and one successor, to whom it sends messages.
a LAN architecture in which all devices are connected to one another in the shape of a closed loop, so that each device is connected directly to two other devices, one on either side of it
a LAN architecture that consists of a series of devices connected to one another by unidirectional transmission links to form a single closed loop
Describes a network in a complete ring. Now the fastest and most resilient network
A network topology in which the nodes in a network form a ring. Each node is connected only to two other nodes, and a centralized hub is not required.
A layout scheme in which the network takes the form of a closed loop with the devices attached into the ring. Every workstation is linked to two others, one on each side. All data is passed from node to node in one direction only, each PC acting as a repeater for the next one in the loop. Response time is determined by the number of stations on the ring - the more there are, the slower it works. If one PC fails, the loop is broken, though most rings have self-healing capacity to reconfigure and continue operation. IBM's Token passing ring ensures that the failed station is removed and its neighbors are then directly connected.
A basic networking topology where all nodes are connected in a circle, with no terminated ends on the cable, like token ring.
1. A physical topology in which network devices are arranged in a closed circle. 2. A logical topology in which packets travel sequentially through all devices around the ring. See also bus topology, logical topology , network topology , and star topology .
A network whose nodes are connected in a continuous loop.
A network topology where stations are connected to the network at a repeater device. The repeaters are linked to each other to form a single, closed, unidirectional loop. See also topology.
A system of local area networking in which each node or station is connected to two others, ultimately forming a loop. Data are passed in one direction only, being received by each node and then transferred to the next node. Access is achieved either by means of a token, passed from one node to the other, or by polling, a kind of inquiry made by a master station. Learn more about Ring Topology...
A network that is connected on both ends to one source, with client machines hanging off of the ring. If you break the ring, all computers in the ring...
A network of computers connected together in a loop using an MAU (Multi access unit). This topology employs the token ring access method.
A network arrangement in which all the devices are connected in a circle or ring. Data passes around the ring from node to node always in the same direction. Each node acts essentially as a repeater and retransmits the messages to the next node.
A network layout that takes the form of a closed loop with the devices attached into the ring. A ring topology has self-healing capabilities, with communication rerouted around a network fault.
Network topology that consists of a series of repeaters connected to one another by unidirectional transmission links to form a single closed loop. Each station on the network connects to the network at a repeater. While logically a ring, ring topologies are most often organized in a closed-loop star. Compare with bus topology, star topology, and tree topology.
network LAN infrastructure in which all network connected devices are connected to one another in the shape of a closed loop. Each device is connected directly to two other devices, one on each side.
A basic networking configuration in which all nodes are connected in a circle with no terminated ends on the cable.
A computer network that involves computer systems connected in a closed loop, with no one computer system the focal point of the network.
