NPU Contrasting the OSI Model and TCP IP Model Research Paper

Northwestern Polytechnic University

Question Description

I’m working on a Computer Science question and need guidance to help me study.

compare and contrast the difference and similarities between the OSI Model and TCP/IP Model.

Also, consider:

  • The layers
  • How is data processed during transmission
  • Traveling up or down the protocol stacks

Minimum 3 pages (not including the title page, abstract and reference)

Support your conclusions with at least two sources other than the textbook.

APA Publication Manual 7th Edition compliance.

Comparing and Contrasting the OSI Model and TCP/IP Model
Majority of data communications these days, whether they are cabled or wireless, occur
through the travelling of packets of information over single or multiple networks. However, the
networks have to use the same principles or protocol to send and receive the data packets before
they can work together. There are many protocols in existence, but the one that is used widely is
the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). Another protocol, the Open
System Interconnection (OSI) model, is a generic model necessary for analyzing the similarities
and differences of different protocols, as well as describing the communications of networks.
The OSI Model
The OSI model provides a common framework for describing and discussing the process
used by computers to communicate over a network. It has seven layers, each of which performs
specific functions in the process of data transmission. They divide several operations into
particular groups that perform relat...
