  • They are physical layer devices that connect network devices in a star or ring topology.
  • They amplify and repeat signals received through one port out all other ports regardless of the destination.
  • Token Ring hubs are multistation access units (MAUs). MAUs can be joined together through dedicated Ring In (RI) and Ring Out (RO) ports to build a larger ring.
  • Hubs provide internal crossover circuits and use uplink ports to form a hierarchical star.
