IMHO, the token ring is a superior protocol! It is deterministic, one could allocate bandwidth and priority to a given node, and many other benefits. The problem was marketing ant the greediness and over protection of IBM. And look at the current Ethernet! Just a point-to-point, switched network, with a single point of failure.

Should also point out that the triumvirate of Digital Equipment Corp. (DEC)--remember those guys, Intel, and Xerox also had a hand in creating the 10-Mbit Ethernet standard that prevailed over the IBM token ring network and others. Funny how much history gets lost in time.

It's always amusing to take jabs at Gore for his ridiculous claim.

Its always great to see and hear from the pioneers. Too bad Al Gore wasn't there to chime in.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
