Network Architecture Paper: Using either the OSI Reference Model or the TCP/IP Protocol Suite, describe how each layer of the Model/Suite represents the communication flow between organizational levels and across departments/division of an actual hierarchical business. Be sure to include a communication flow diagram showing the logical and physical connections.

This is the big picture explanation of the TCP/IP protocol and how it maps to the OSI model. The big picture covers the OSI model layers and their functions, TCP/IP layers, functions, PDUs and addressing. Then it shows how the many different network devices are mapped to the TCP/IP protocol.
