Please Do Not Touch Steve’s Pet Alligator!!

The Open Systems Interconnection model (OSI model) is a conceptual model that characterizes and standardizes the communication functions of a network [2]. The Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model is a conceptual model created by the International Organization for Standardization which enables diverse communication systems to communicate using standard protocols. In plain English, the OSI provides a standard for different computer systems to be able to communicate with each other.

The OSI model can be seen as a universal language for computer networking. It’s based on the concept of splitting up a communication system into seven abstract layers, each one stacked upon the last.[3]
