Token Bus and Token Ring Networking

The Ethernet system has two main disadvantages.

1. This system may not be suitable for a high traffic if excessive number of collisions are anticipated.

2. Due to number of retransmission, reduced throughput and increased delay results. The alternative for the Ethernet system are Token Bus (IEEE 802.4) and Token Ring (802.5). The token bus combines features of Ethernet and Token ring to provide a deterministic delay under heavy loads without causing collisions. Token ring is a powerful LAN technology that is designed to handle heavy loads. Both Token Bus and Token Ring Networking are described in this section.
