Which defines IP address system and the routing schemes for navigating packets fromone IP address to another.
The Internet Protocol (IP) is the primary protocol in the Network Layer.
It deals with internetworking.
Sending data from the source network to the destination network , this process iscalled routing.
Network Access Layer:
In the TCP/IP architecture, the Data Link Layer and Physical Layer are normaly groupedtogether to become the Network Access layer.
It is fourth level layer.
It defines the low-level protocols used for signaling and communication.
Some examples of Low level protocols in Network Access Layer arePPP,FDI,Frame
In the following illustration, each layer of the TCP/IP model corresponds to one or morelayers of the seven-layer Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) reference model proposed bythe International Standards Organization (ISO).
