Why a Layered Network Model?

Reduces complexity
Standardizes interfaces
Facilitates modular engineering
Ensures interoperable technology
Accelerates evolution
Simplifies teaching and learning

The Seven Layers of the OSI Model

The OSI reference model defines the network functions that occur at each layer.

The physical layer defines the electrical, mechanical, procedural, and functional specifications for activating, maintaining, and deactivating the physical link between end systems.

The data link layer defines how data is formatted for transmission and how access to the physical media is controlled.
04.png
The network layer provides connectivity and path selection between two host systems that may be located on geographically separated networks.
05.png
The transport layer segments data from the system of the sending host and reassembles the data into a data stream on the system of the receiving host.

The session layer establishes, manages, and terminates sessions between two communicating hosts.
07.png
The presentation layer ensures that the information sent at the application layer of one system is readable by the application layer of another system.

The application layer provides network services to the applications of the user, such as e-mail, file transfer, and terminal emulation.

TCP/IP Stack
13.png
Defines four layers
Uses different names for Layers 1 through 3
Combines Layers 5 through 7 into single application layer

The OSI reference model defines the network functions that occur at each layer.

TCP/IP is now the most widely used protocol for a number of reasons, including its flexible addressing scheme, its usability by most operating systems and platforms, its many tools and utilities, and the need to use it to connect to the Internet.

The components of the TCP/IP stack are the network access, Internet, transport, and application layers.

The OSI model and the TCP/IP stack are similar in structure and function, with correlation at the physical, data link, network, and transport layers. The OSI model divides the application layer of the TCP/IP stack into three separate layers.
