Token ring (IEEE 802.5) is a local area network (LAN) with a ring or a star
topology. To avoid collisions, the access to the medium is managed by
Only the station who owns the token, is allowed to send data. The sender
has to destroy the data and set the token free after sending. The receiver
copies the data when it passes him.
In the simulation you can see how the token ring works under different traffic-intensities.
You can also see the average packets sent per second. Use the "clear"-button
to reset the values.
