Keywords:  sublayer, llc, ieee, osi, datalink
(LLC) Defined by IEEE 802 standards as the upper sublayer of the data link layer. It allows higher-layer protocol to operate independently of the LAN being used.
A protocol developed by the IEEE 802, common to all of its local network standards, for data link-level transmission control. The upper sublayer of the IEEE layer-2 (OSI) protocol that complements the MAC protocol (IEEE 802.2).
A data-link standard defined by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for use on Ethernet, token ring, FDD I, and certain other data links. At the physical level, these protocols include the 802.3 CSMA/CD protocol, the 802.4 token bus protocol, and the 802.5 token ring protocol. At the data-link level, you access these protocols through the IEEE 802.2 Logical Link Control (LLC) protocol.
