Example text

The OSI-RM's seven abstract layers each perform a specific function. Layers 2 through 6 (the middle layers) have a common characteristic, in that they perform a service (or set of services) for the layer above, and expect a service (or set of services) from the layer below. In other words, they are simultaneously "clients" of the layer below, while they offer "services" to the layer above. The reason that layer 1 and layer 7 are different is that they have no layer below or no layer above, respectively.

Full- or half-duplex). However, this negotiation happens below the MAC sub-layer. 11. [ Team LiB ] [ Team LiB ] Summary We have seen that the landscape of networking standards is littered with a figurative alphabet soup of standards bodies and their output. The Data Link layer is only one of the seven layers of the OSI-RM, an abstract model of a layered protocol stack. The TCP/IP protocol suite is much less formal than the OSI-RM, but layers similar functions in hierarchically similar ways. The IEEE has developed numerous standards at the Data Link layer, and in doing so has created the logical partition of the Data Link layer into the Logical Link Control (LLC) and Medium Access Control (MAC) sub-layers.

11 is one example of a MAC sub-layer protocol that supports a primitive type of reliability, yet it is a connectionless protocol. The Network Layer The Physical layer is completely unconcerned with the structure of the bit-stream that it is carrying. In that respect, the Physical layer is unaware of its payload. The Data Link layer is similarly unaware of a frame's payload, which is commonly a Network layer protocol, or some other "client" protocol of the Data Link layer, 36 37 such as a control or setup protocol.
