Information technology - Open Systems Interconnection - Network service definition
|Publication Date:||1 January 2004|
|ICS Code (Network layer):||35.100.30|
This Recommendation | International Standard defines the OSI Network Service in terms of:
a) the primitive actions and events of the Service;
b) the parameters associated with each primitive action and event, and the form which they take;
c) the interrelationship between, and the valid sequences of, these actions and events.
The principal objectives of this Recommendation | International Standard are:
1) To specify the characteristics of a conceptual Network Service and thus, supplement the Reference Model in guiding the development of Network Layer protocols.
2) To encourage convergence of the capabilities offered by providers of subnetworks.
3) To provide a basis for the individual enhancement of existing heterogeneous subnetworks to a common subnetwork-independe
4) To provide a basis for the development and implementation of subnetwork-independe
This Recommendation | International Standard does not specify individual implementations or products nor does it constrain the implementation of entities and interfaces within a system.
There is no conformance of equipment to this Recommendation | International Standard. Instead, conformance is achieved through implementation of conforming OSI Network protocols which fulfil the Network Service defined in this Recommendation | International Standard.
