distributed loop computer network (DLCN)

A Distributed Loop Computer Network (DLCN) is a ring system that transports messages

by register insertion. The Distributed Loop Computer Network enables the simultaneous transmission of messages of variable length without the aid of a central control. Thus, a system

with complete distributedness is realized here, where all stations are truly equal and there is no need for a distinguished station. Each station has a FIFO buffer in its ring interface into which incoming messages are pushed if they are not intended for the station in question itself.
