The OSI model is a concept that breaks down communication between two computers on a network type in a layered process, where each layer will efficiently handle its portion of this process until information is exchanged as desired by the user. The OSI model will describe the flow of data n a network, from the lowest layer of physical connections up to the layer containing the user’s applications. (James Bond Meets the 7 Layer OSI Model, 2004) This process may seem complicated from the technical aspect of an explanation, but can be related in terms of more common processes of information or data exchange on a regular basis. Consider the process of mail order from the Home Shopping Network or HSN where a package (data) moves from the ordering process to the home of the requestor (user).
