What layers of the OSI model does the Application layer of the TCP/IP model relate to?
Application, Presentation, Session
What layer of the OSI model does the Transport layer of the TCP/IP model relate to?
What layers of the OSI model does the Network Access layer of the TCP/IP model relate to?
Data Link, Physical
application layer 7 of the OSI model
The application layer provides the means for end-to-end connectivity between individuals in the human network using data networks.
presentation layer 6 of the OSI model
The presentation layer provides for common representation of the data transferred between application layer services.
Session layer 5 of the OSI model
The session layer provides services to the presentation layer to organize its dialogue and to manage data exchange.
transport layer 4 of the OSI model
The transport layer defines services to segment, transfer, and reassemble the data for individual communications between the end devices.
network layer 3 of the OSI model
The network layer provides services to exchange the individual pieces of data over the network between identified end devices.
data link layer 2 of the OSI model
The data link layer protocols describe methods for exchanging data frames between devices over a common media.
physical layer 1 of the OSI model
The physical layer protocols describe the mechanical, electrical, functional, and procedural means to activate, maintain, and de-activate physical-connections for bit transmission to and from a network device.
application layer of the TCP/IP model
Represents data to the user, plus encoding and dialog control.
transport layer of the TCP/IP model
supports communication between diverse devices across diverse networks.
internet layer of the TCP/IP model
determines the best path through the network.
network access layer of the TCP/IP model
controls the hardware devices and media that make up the network.
interleaving the pieces as they traverse the media.

multiple communications are interleaved, giving each user a part of the bandwidth.
breaking communication into pieces.
The general term for the PDU used at the application layer
Transport layer PDU
Internet layer PDU
Network access layer PDU
A PDU used when physically transmitting data over the medium
What is the order of data encapsulation of the PDUs from top to bottom?
Data, Segments, Packets, Frames, Bits.
An IP packet contains two IP addresses
Source IP address - The IP address of the sending device.
Destination IP address - The IP address of the receiving device. The destination IP address is used by routers to forward a packet to its destination.
Source data link address
The physical address of the device that is sending the packet. Initially this is the NIC that is the source of the IP packet.
Destination data link address
The physical address of the network interface of either the next hop router or the network interface of the destination device.
What is an advantage of using standards to develop and implement protocols
What is an advantage of using standards to develop and implement protocols.
What layer of the TCP/IP model does DNS operate on?
application layer
What layer of the TCP/IP model does UDP operate on?
transport layer
What layer of the TCP/IP model does ICMP operate on?
internet layer
What layer of the TCP/IP model does WLAN operate on?
network access layer
Which two message timing mechanisms are used in data communications?
response timeout

flow control
Which standards organization developed the 802.3 (Ethernet) standard?
What organization developed the OSI reference model that is used in networking?
Which organization develops the 802 family of standards for wired and wireless LANs and MANs?
What three functions are defined by network protocols to allow communication between known source and destination IP addresses?
data encoding

message size

delivery options
What is the purpose of protocols in data communications?
providing the rules required for a specific type of communication to occur
Which message delivery option is used when all devices need to receive the same message simultaneously?
What is the purpose of network protocols?
They define how messages are exchanged between the source and the destination.
