Shemot 27:4 says that on the net-work that surrounds the mizbe'ach (altar), one should place four rings, one one each corner. Thus, one needs to create a ring network, which is a somewhat common data communication topology.

Why does the altar need a ring network?

Ring networks have strong advantages for teshuva. See Ring Network wikipedia where it lists the advantages:

  • Point to point line configuration makes it easy to identify and isolate faults.
  • Reconfiguration for line faults of bidirectional rings can be very fast, as switching happens at a high level, and thus the traffic does not require individual rerouting.

So on the mizbe'ach, faults are corrected in the optimal way.
