Token Ring

Technology / Computers / Token Ring: A type of LAN in which workstations relay a data packet called a token in a logical ring configuration - known as token passing. A station may only transmit if it is in possession of the token. Token Ring tends to use slower technologies and so isn't used much anymore, though its method of avoiding data collisions on the lines does save time, and the technology hasn't been abandoned because of this.
