To enable the packet forwarding to keep moving in the same direction on a particular ring and also minimize the path distance, virtual angle of each node in the ring structure is computed in the following way: Nodes on the base ring are first assigned with virtual angles based on their positions (more exactly, hop distances to a preselected reference node on the cycle, in the same direction) on the cycled path and non-base-ring nodes' virtual angles are iteratively computed based on the virtual angles of their father nodes on their shortest paths to the base ring.
