The acronym MS/TP stands for Master-Slave/Token-Passing. The protocol uses EIA-485 as the physical layer.
Those LANs are Master-Slave/Token-Passing (MS/TP), ANSI/ATA 878.1 (ARCNET), and ISO-8802-3 (commonly referred-to as "Ethernet").
For BACnet, these include Ethernet[TM], ARCNET[TM], LonTalk[TM], and Master-Slave/Token-Passing (MS/TP) using EIA-485.
Using BACnet's Master-Slave/Token-Passing (MS/TP) as a sensor or field bus allows placement of the sensor and actuator devices along a single common wiring route that shares the communication bus with the controller and other BACnet controllers on the same segment up to 5,000 ft (1524 m) long.
