Re: early token release question..

Yes, you're right about that. Here's the scene:

- ring node receives token

- it starts sending the data to the ring

- as soon as the payload has been sent the node sends token to allow some other node to start sending

BTW if I recall correctly the ETR is available on 16M TR only.

Rgds,
