Jump to user comments
networking The top layer of the OSI seven layer model.
This layer handles issues like network transparency,
resource allocation and problem partitioning. The application
layer is concerned with the user's view of the network
(e.g. formatting electronic mail messages). The
presentation layer provides the application layer with a
familiar local representation of data independent of the
format used on the network.
