In this part of W2 Assignment 2, you will examine the role of the OSI model in network design.
The OSI model is not a network architecture, and it does not constitute network specifications. The OSI model serves as a guideline for network design and helps in representing how a network functions.
Continuing with the course project you started in Week 1, on the basis of your research and reading in this week, complete the following tasks:
- Map the layers of the OSI model to the actual processes required for your scenario as identified in W1 Assignment 3. Use the OSI model as your network design reference.
- Based on the updates to your network design, update the vendor and costs table that you created in W1 Assignment 3.
- Finally, add a network process diagram to your proposal.
