Studying the Open System Interconnection Model and Proposing the Concept of Layer Zero


  • Department of Computer Science, Chitkara University, Chandigarh - 140 401, Punjab, India


Background/Objectives: The background objective of this research paper is to break a predefined networking model so that it is studied in greater depth and open new portals of improvements for the coming generations. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Since this research work is more is more of a theoretical approach therefore there is no sample testing involved but it proposes to add something in the predefined technique which is being used to make networking structure. The mainly used devices are available ordinarily in the combination with other amount of hardware; actually the devices mentioned here are embedded within the circuitry of other devices. Findings: It has been found that after implantation of the addition proposed there would be more ease in understanding the hierarchical structures of networking. A separate division of the networking branch is made for the digital electronics by doing so. Also a layer is bifurcated leading to ease the way things were approached. Application/Improvements: There is a greater chance of improvement in what has been accomplished, like by changing a device with more efficient device could be lead to great innovations.
