OSI (Open Systems Interconnection) Layer – Functionality, Tools and Protocols

OSI Layer Model developed by ISO, which is a 7 layer networking model, defines how networks should be designed and how devices on a network talk to each other. Each layer in the OSI model works directly with the layer above or below it and has a set function for moving communication across a network. The following table gives a quick overview of each layer and devices / tools / protocols used by each layer for communication.
