White Paper Wednesday: The TCP/IP and OSI Model
Last September I wrote a post defining the OSI model, so I was quite intrigued when I came across this white paper from Global Knowledge comparing and contrasting OSI to TCP/IP. Author Paul Simoneau is a senior instructor and course director with Global Knowledge, where he has authored and managed highly successful courses in various formats.
Mr. Simoneau wastes no time in this paper, but quickly runs through the History of each protocol suite, reviews the similarities and differences, breaks out the layers of each model, and wraps up with some great conclusions on why we need an understanding of both protocols.
