Definition Edit

The Network Layer

is responsible for getting data packets from one network to another. If the networks are far apart, the data packets are routed from one network to the next until they reach their destination. The primary protocol in this layer is the Internet Protocol (IP).[1]

Overview Edit

"Examples of this layer include IPv4, IPv6, 6LoWPan, etc."[2]
