Transportation rings are similar in function to [[Stargate]]s, but only transport matter across planetary distances, either on the planet itself or to ships in [[orbit]]. When activated, a number of rings rise from the floor or drop from the ceiling, surrounding the object and converting it to energy. The [[matter stream]] is then transmitted to a similar set of rings (or the rings themselves simply move where desired) which reassemble the object. In order to prevent damage to people or objects during reassembly, the matter at the destination is swapped with the matter at the departure point.

The rings were designed by the [[Ancient]]s, but are used by the [[Goa'uld]], [[Tok'ra]], [[Tau'ri]], and [[Ori]]. Ori rings have a slightly different design, but are compatible with other types of rings. The Ancients themselves appear to have abandoned the use of ring transporters after [[Atlantis]] reached the [[Pegasus]] [[galaxy]]. The [[Atlantis transporter|transporters]] found in [[Atlantis]] function on a similar principle, however, suggesting the technology was based on the rings. After the Ancients returned to [[Earth]] from [[Atlantis]], they began to use [[Ancient beam transporter|beam transporters]]. {{Cite|SG1|Lost City, Part 2|Avalon, Part 1|Origin|Beachhead}}
