In this chapter, we look at layered models, which are standard ways of organising networks. The chapter starts with an explanation of network layering and its advantages. Next, there is a description of one of the most important networking models, the open systems interconnection (OSI) 7-layer model. An explanation of the principles of data encapsulation follows. Another important networking model, TCP/IP, is then explained and compared with the 7-layer model. Finally, we look at several important networking standards bodies.
