Osi Model

OSI Model This memorandum will attempt to explain the Open Systems Interconnection Model, known more simply as the OSI Model. The OSI Model has seven levels, and these levels will be discussed in detail. Particular mention will be made to which level TCP/IP functions with the OSI Model. The seven levels of the OSI Model are as follows: 7) Application: Provides different services to the applications. 6) Presentation: Converts the information. 5) Session: Handles problems which are not communication...

Osi vs Tcp Ip Model

OSI vs. TCP/IP Model Comparison & Overview The Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) reference model created in the late seventies and used today consists of seven layers that include Application, Presentation, Session, Transport, Network, Data Link and Physical. The Application layer often dubbed Layer 7 is the most common layer to end users and can consist of applications such as Microsoft's Internet Explorer or other browser software. The Presentation layer provides a translation of application...

History of the Osi Reference Model

History of the OSI Reference Model Looking at the origins of the OSI Reference Model takes us back to several issues that were discussed in the Networking Fundamentals chapter of this Guide; specifically, I am talking about standards and standards organizations. The idea behind the creation of networking standards is to define widely-accepted ways of setting up networks and connecting them together. The OSI Reference Model represented an early attempt to get all of the various hardware and software...

The Osi Model

The OSI Model NTC/360 Network & Telecommunications Concepts The OSI Model The Open Systems Interconnection Reference Model (OSI) is the accepted model that describes the how the communications for a computer network should be designed. OSI was developed as part of the Open Systems Interconnect Initiative. Basically, OSI divides the functions of a protocol in to seven layers. This makes the reasoning easy to follow and the system much more reliable. The implementation of several OSI layers...

Osi Model

the OSI model and how it relates to a network. Your response should include answers to the following: • On which layers of the OSI model do WAN protocols operate? • What are some of these protocols? • On which OSI layers do switches and routers operate? • If routers reside at more than one layer, what is the difference between the OSI layers? Introduction: The OSI model was introduced in 1984. Although it was designed to be an abstract model, the OSI model remains...

Osi Model

IT310 OSI Model In the early years of computer and network research and development many systems were designed by a number of companies. Although each system had its rights and were sold across the world, it became apparent as network usage grew, that it was difficult, to enable all of these systems to communicate with each other. In the early 1980s, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) recognized the need for a network model that would help companies create...

Osi Models

OSI Model Joshua M. Grooms The Open Systems Interconnection model, or the OSI model, is a way to sub-divide a communications system into smaller, more manageable parts known as layers. A layer is a grouping of functions that have similar purpose that either provide services to the layer above it or receives services from the layer below it. On which layer of the OSI model do WAN protocols operate? WANs are managed by the protocols that exist in level 2, the Data Link Layer, of the OSI...
