In the predecessor to the tcp/ip model, the arpanet reference model (rfc 908, 1982), aspects of the link layer are referred to by several poorly defined terms, such as network-access layer, network-access protocol, as well as network layer, while the next higher layer is called internetwork layer. B adjacent-layer interaction occurs on one computer, with two adjacent layers in the model the higher layer requests services from the next lower layer, and the lower layer provides the services to the next higher layer. On a computer that receives data over a network, the process in which the device interprets the lower-layer headers and, when finished with each header, removes the header, revealing the next-higher-layer pdu.
The tcp/ip model describes the protocols used by the internet the tcp/ip model has a layer called the internet layer, located above the link layer in many textbooks and other secondary references, the tcp/ip internet layer is equated with the osi network layer. The network layer provides the means of transferring variable-length network packets from a source to a destination host via one or more networks within the service layering semantics of the osi network architecture, the network layer responds to service requests from the transport layer and issues service requests to the data link layer. The internetworking layer (internet layer) is a subset of the osi network layer the link layer includes the osi data link layer and sometimes the physical layers, as well as some protocols of the osi's network layer. This paper will be discussing in the physical layer, the contrast of circuit switching and packet switching in the data link layer, sliding window protocols and the data link layer in the internet and for the network layer, virtual circuits and datagram will be discussed as well as the purpose of routing algorithms.
When starting with protocols that work at the upper layers of the network models, each set of data is wrapped inside the next lower layer protocol, similar to wrapping letters inside an envelope the application creates the data, then the transport layer wraps that data inside its format, then the network layer wraps the data, and finally the.

The network stack needs to know which protocol in the next higher layer gets the payload of the current layer edit 1: the reason that each datagram has the protocol of the next upper layer is to create the layer independence.
A group of network protocols that work together at higher and lower levels is often called a protocol family students of networking traditionally learn about the osi model that conceptually organizes network protocol families into specific layers for teaching purposes.
The knowledge pages provide technical information on the can (controller area network) data link layer protocols and several can physical layer options the can protocol description covers both the classical can data link layer and can fd data link layer protocols the upper layers are usually referenced as higher-layer protocols often.
