[e2e] seeking help recalling a network term

Hi, all,

I apologize if this is a simple question:

I'm trying to recall the name for a network where the number of
packets/tokens/empty-frames inside the net is a constant, i.e., where
real data can be put into these units when empty, and emptied at the
destination, but that the whole net is otherwise just shuffling around
these 'holes'.

I'm recalling a term akin to "idempotent" or "isomorphic" - though I
know both are wrong ;-) Does anyone recall the term for these nets?

(I recall their being vogue in the late 1980's, but not much after that).
