A wireless network system based on an infrared and Laser scanning Physical Token Ring architecture (W-PTRS) was designed, built and tested successfully. The network provides a different way of utilizing the concept of a token ring network but with a higher efficiency related to the speed of data transfer and the ability to parallel process client-server requests leading to a new concept of the token ring system, which will not fail simply because of ring breakage. The study proposes a new wireless communication protocol, which is neither IEEE802.11 nor Bluetooth. This newly developed protocol could prove to be an excellent communication media if supported by industry. If implemented, this wireless system will provide an alternative but efficient way of wireless communication.
