Network Layer – OSI Model

August 7, 2016 Posted in ISO/OSI Ref

The main aim of this layer is to deliver packets from source to destination across multiple links (networks). If two computers (system) are connected on the same link then there is no need for a network layer. It routes the signal through different channels to the other end and acts as a network controller.

It also divides the outgoing messages into packets and to assemble incoming packets into messages for higher levels.

 

Network Layer in ISO-OSI Model


FUNCTIONS OF NETWORK LAYER:

  1. It translates logical network address into physical address. Concerned with circuit, message or packet switching.
  2. Routers and gateways operate in the network layer. Mechanism is provided by Network Layer for routing the packets to final destination.

  4. Breaks larger packets into small packets.
