A network topology in which all networking devices are linked in a ring. This topology is used by protocols including Token Ring, and the maximum cable length allowed in this topology is much greater than the values for other network topologies.
Network topology in which each node is connected to two adjacent nodes to form a continuous ring configuration. Used particularly in the context of local area networks.
A network topology in the form of a closed loop or circle. Each node in the network is connected to the next, and messages move in one direction around the system. When a message arrives at a node, the node examines the address information in the message. If the address matches the node's address, the message is accepted; otherwise the node regenerates the signal and places the message back on the network for the next node in the system. It is this regeneration that allows a ring network to cover much greater distances than star and bus networks. Ring networks normally use some form of token-passing protocol to regulate network traffic.
Describes a network in a complete ring. Now the fastest and most resilient network
a chain, folded up on itself and closed again, consisting only of ADM nodes and with no terminal node
a closed network structure in the form of a circle, to which all nodes are connected
a local area network ( LAN ) in which the node s (workstations or other devices) are connected in a closed loop configuration
a topology of computer networks where each user is connected to two other users, so as to create a ring
a variation on the bus design, with the end of the cable run attaching itself to the beginning of the backbone in order to form a complete, unbroken ring
Connects multiple computers and some peripherals into a ring-like structure. When a computer receives a packet, it checks the address. It the packet's address is different from the compute's address, it passes it on to the next computer of noes. Eventually, the packet arrives at its destination. It can transmit at the same time to increase network throughput.
A network that connects devices in a closed loop.
1. n. A network in which every node has exactly two branches connected to it and in which there are exactly two paths between any two nodes. 2. n. A network configuration in which devices are connected by unidirectional transmission links to form a closed path.
network in which each computer is connected to the next with the last computer connected to the first. Contrast with bus network, mesh network, and star network.
A cable network topology characterized by a cable that forms a completely closed loop. Contrast with star and bus topologies. A network in which every node has exactly two branches connected to it.
A network topology that connects its terminals in a loop or ring.
(1.) A network in which every node has two branches connected to it. (2.) A network configuration in which devices are connected by unidirectional transmission links to form a closed path. See also ring.
A system in which all stations are linked to form a continuous loop or circle.
network topology similar to a bus network, but with the ends of the wire connected to form a ring. Ring networks are uncommon today.
network topology in which terminals are connected in a point-to-point serial fashion in an unbroken circular configuration.
A ring network is a topology of computer networks where each node is connected to two other nodes, so as to create a ring.
