TCP Reliability

If all the links in the Internet were to provide reliable delivery service, would the TCP reliable delivery service be redundant? Discuss why or why not.

A reliable protocol in an internet working makes sure that the data transfer reaches the destination along with a notification versus an unreliable one that doesn't provide any notification of data delivery to the sender. Transmission Control Protocol, also known commonly as TCP, is a reliable delivery service that works with source and destination IP addresses being used for data communication. Because reliability in a delivery service requires notification of some sort, therefore this hits performance in the rate of delivery service. ...

TCP/IP

The TCP/IP, or the DoD, model has been in use for years before the OSI layered model was released. Today, TCP/IP is the protocol that is used for Internet communications. However, the practicality of the TCP/IP did not make the OSI model irrelevant.
What five benefits does the OSI model offer? To demonstrate your understanding of the two models, please provide a mapping of the TCP/IP model to the OSI model.
? Research the OSI and TCP/IP models.
? In your own words, provide a description of each model.
? Using Microsoft Word, Excel, or Visio, create an original image that contains a mapping of the TCP/IP model to the OSI model.
? In your own words, provide an in-depth analysis of the two models.
◦ List and discuss five advantages of the OSI model.
◦ List and discuss three advantages of the TCP/IP model.
