OSI Model Resources
|OSI is a reference model for transmitting messages between two points in a network. The concept behind the model is that the process of transmitting the messages can be divided into layers, each with its own set of special,
related functions. Understanding these layers and what components of your network function at which layers is important to network design and troubleshooting, which is why it is often used as the teaching model for all other protocols.
