Transport Layer - Information Exchange - Delivery & Flow
the transmission control layer, provides connection-oriented services that can set up a link between two end-points to monitor data flow and guarantee delivery.
the transport layer, controls the movement of data between systems, defines protocols for structuring messages, and supervises the validity of transmissions by performing error checking.
The transport layer of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) reference model, where such protocols as Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) operate. See OSI, TCP and UDP.
Transport Layer Responsible for error correction and direction of flow (transmit/receive)
Transport The purpose of the Transport layer is to provide transparent transfer of data between end users, thus relieving the upper layers from any concern with providing reliable and cost-effective data transfer. The transport layer controls the reliability of a given link. Some protocols are stateful and connection oriented. This means that the session layer can keep track of the packets and retransmit those that fail. NetBEUI Q.931 TCP UDP RTP SCTP
The fourth, or transport, layer of the open systems interconnection (OSI) model. It encompasses network services that provide end-to-end management of a communications session.
In the (OSI) model, the transport layer which represents the processes involved in establishing connections throughout the network and the control of the transmission of data within the network.
