ring network

[′riŋ ′net‚wərk]
(communications)
A communications network in which the nodes can be considered to be on a circle, about which messages must be routed. Also known as loop network.

ring network

(networking, topology)
A network topology in which all nodes are connected to a single wire in a ring or point-to-point. There are no endpoints. This topology is used by token ring networks.

Compare: bus network, star network.

The solution can be configured for point-to-point, linear chain, point-to-multipoint, or ring network topologies.
Since bidirectional ring topology is common in datacenter networking [8], an all-optical ring network based on LOBS-HC without wavelength conversion is considered in this paper.
Tata Power is thus creating a backbone (33kV/11kV) of distribution network, identifying sources or outlets at Receiving Sub-Stations (RSS) to feed supply to DSS, establishing connectivity to feed the DSS from identified RSS and creating a 11kV main ring network.
