OSI Reference Model

The Open Systems Interconnection Reference Model (OSI Reference Model) is provided for this project to describe the flow of data and to illustrate how one layer should interact with another. The table below divides the functions of an application or protocol implemented in the solution into a series of layers. Each layer communicates and exports functionality into the layer above and below itself. The lower layers deal with the physical connections and hardware requirements while the higher layers tend to be implemented within the application and user interaction portion of the solution.

OSI Layers

Layer Seven: Application Layer

Interconnection Comments

Layer Six: Presentation Layer

Interconnection Comments

Layer Five: Session Layer

Interconnection Comments

Layer Four: Transport Layer

Interconnection Comments

Layer Three: Network Layer

Interconnection Comments

Layer Two: Data Link Layer

Interconnection Comments

Layer One: Physical Layer

Interconnection Comments

Repeat for each protocol needing a description – or combine all protocols by their layers into a single table per layer.
