      Token Ring :

      - In token ring, each node contains a repeater that receives bits from one of the two links and transmits them on the other.

      - It receives messages by copying bits as they pass by .

      - Every token ring network is built in a star topology.

      - The network is physically wired with all nodes connecting to a device called a Multistation Access Unit (MSAU) in a star topology.

      - It provides a priority system that allow administrator to designate specific stations.

      - Multiple identical MAC addresses are supported on Token ring.

      - A token passing is a Media Access Control, or MAC protocol which determines how stations transmit data to the network.

      - MAC is a very low level protocol built into every token ring device and operates automatically, with no user setup required.
