A LAN access method that uses the token passing technology. Stations are logically connected in a ring but are physically connected by a common bus. All tokens are broadcast to every station in the network, but only the station with the destination address responds. After transmitting a maximum amount of data, the token is passed to the next logical station in the ring. The MAP factory automation protocol uses this method. See token passing.
