What are the protocols used in transport layer?

The standard protocols used by Transport Layer to enhance its functionalities are TCP(Transmission Control Protocol), UDP( User Datagram Protocol), DCCP( Datagram Congestion Control Protocol) etc.

Is TCP a transport layer protocol?

In terms of the OSI model, TCP is a transport-layer protocol. It provides a reliable virtual-circuit connection between applications; that is, a connection is established before data transmission begins. Data is sent without errors or duplication and is received in the same order as it is sent.

Is ICMP a layer 2?

I found that these books have stated ARP and ICMP as a layer 2 protocol for OSI model (i.e. data link layer) and a layer 2 for TCP/IP model too (i.e. Internet layer).

What are layer 4 protocols?

The two most common layer four protocols are the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and the User Datagram Protocol (UDP). As with many Internet protocols, the File Transfer Protocol ( FTP) uses the Transmission Control Protocol ( TCP) to provide guaranteed delivery on top of the Internet Protocol (IP).

What are the functions of the OSI transport layer?

The main functions defined at the OSI transport layer include: Tracking of communication between the upper (application layer) and lower (network layer) from the source to the destination. This means that it separates the different applications from the packets it receives from the network layer.

What are OSI protocols?

OSI protocols are a family of standards for information exchange. These were developed and designed by the International Organization of Standardization (ISO).

What are the protocols in OSI model?

The following are the OSI protocols used in the seven layers of the OSI Model: Layer 1, the Physical Layer: This layer deals with the hardware of networks such as cabling. The major protocols used by this layer include Bluetooth, PON, OTN, DSL, IEEE.802.11, IEEE.802.3, L431 and TIA 449.
