OSI model-Network Layer,Transport Layer


Network Layer
This layer controls the operation of the subnet,how packets are routed from source to destination.
If too many packets are present, such congestion is controlled by network layer.
n/w layer allows heterogeneous n/ws to be interconnected.

Transport Layer
The basic function of the transport layer is to accept data from above,split it up into smaller units if need be,pass these to n/w layer and ensure that pieces all arrive correctly at the other end.
The transport layer is a true end-to-end layer,air the way from source to destination.
The difference between layer1 through 3,which are chained and layers4 through 7,which are end-to-end.
