For this reason, applications which need highly deterministic load behavior sometimes used polling or token-passing schemes (such as token ring) instead of contention systems.

Most of the listed rates are theoretical maximum throughput measures; in practice, the actual effective throughput is almost inevitably lower in proportion to the load from other devices (network/bus contention), physical or temporal distances, and other overhead in data link layer protocols etc.

Token ring

IEEE 802.5TokenRingToken-Ring
This token passing is a channel access method providing fair access for all stations, and eliminating the collisions of contention-based access methods.

Telcom (Ireland)

This allowed them to expand their business fibre broadband service, offering speeds of up to 1 Gb/s to customers with zero contention rates.

Point coordination function

Since most APs have logical bus topologies (they are shared circuits) only one message can be processed at one time (it is a contention based system), and thus a media access control technique is required.
