For this assessment, create and describe the information flow of an OSI model.
To begin, select a generic work environment, such as any office that would use a phone system, to use as an example to describe how this is done.
Also, complete the practice labs provided in the Virtual Resource Portal activity for this assessment. Use these labs and the Internet to gather the information necessary to create your own analogy essay of the flow of information through the OSI model. Your analogy will include network protocols and compare these against the OSI model.
Then, complete the following:
1.Create an OSI model for a generic work environment. You can use Microsoft Word to do this.
2.Write a report that addresses the following, based on the OSI model you created. ◦Provide an explanation of at least three different network protocols used in the OSI model.
◦Explain the purpose and role of at least three of the network protocols you identify.
◦Describe the importance of the work performed by the network protocols you identify. This may include how well they do with network security. Examples include TCP/IP traffic and port security.
◦Apply the concepts from the practice lab activities for this assessment.
