The desire to maintain the ability to communicate, even while away from the home or office, has driven the wireless communication market to a large extent.
The ATM model's primary layers are the physical layer, the ATM layer, and the ATM Adaptation layer.

Acknowledgments This memo could not have come into being without the critical review from Jim Forster of Cisco Systems, Drew Perkins of FORE Systems, and Bryan Lyles, Steve Deering, and Berry Kercheval of XEROX PARC.A communication protocol is a set of rules and message formats that entities must follow to exchange those messages. ISO formulated the OSI model which consists of seven layers of specified protocol standards for network communications software. Defines the electrical and mechanical specifications of the transmission medium and the interface hardware. This layer is responsible for data representation translation between nodes. This layer is responsible for establishing, synchronizing and maintaining communications channels between nodes. The OSI model has come to be the de facto organizational model for describing protocol layering. Responsible for packing the data from the physical layer into frames. This layer is responsible for routing data between nodes. Additionally, it describes the method for how data is sent and received on the medium. Encryption and compression protocols are usually categorized here. ADCCP, Advanced Data Communications Control Protocol. Apple Talk protocol suite, transport layer protocol.
TCP/IP protocol suite, application layer routing protocol.
