arbitrated loop

A topology for Fibre Channel networks in which nodes are connected in a single logical loop or ring created by tying the transmit lead of one node loop port to the receive lead of its downstream neighbor. There are primarily two types of arbitrated loops—public loops and private loops. A public loop is attached to a SAN fabric. A private loop is a free-standing arbitrated loop with no SAN attachment.
