The TCP/IP model is a five-layer model for networking. From bottom (the link to the internet) to top (the user application), these are (1) the physical connection, (2) data link, (3) network, (4) transport, and (5) application layers. Since the model defines hardware, the TCP/IP model gaps are filled in by IETF standards and protocols.
