    The State of Oregon uses a Token Ring network. If you understand the difference between star and ring under load you will understand why they are token ring.

    Hynix [formerly Hyundai] in Eugene uses a FDDI ring in the fab with star nodes off the ring.

    Some realworld examples in our neck of the woods.
