Networking - The OSI Seven-Layer Model - The Physical Layer

The purpose of the physical layer is to control the process of transferring individual bits from place to place. As such, it defines:

Various network devices are normally associated with the physical layer:

The physical layer is responsible for seven processes, each of which is responsible for a series of methods:

  1. Connection Types
  2. Physical Topology
  3. Digital Signaling
  4. Analog Signaling
  5. Bit Synchronization
  6. Bandwidth Use
  7. Multiplexing

Let's move on to layer 2, the Data Link Layer.

Nah, I want to skip around:
