    Default Your mnemonic trick to remember the OSI layer

    This is something I never really forgotten (which probably helps when starting to study for the CCNA) is the OSI model ..

    I thought, why don't we all share how we remember them :P

    So here is my one (top to bottom)

    [Application] All
    [Presentation] Pros
    [Session] Search
    [Transport] Top
    [Network] Notch
    [Data Link] Donut
    [Physical] Places

    The CBT Nugget one is not too bad either (Bottom to Top)

    [Application] Away
    [Presentation] Pizza
    [Session] Sausage
    [Transport] Throw
    [Network] Not
    [Data Link] Do
    [Physical] Please

    There's been a couple of threads with a lot of those:
    http://techexams.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3740
    http://techexams.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=29818

    And yes, I did find those by searching for "ninja turtles" in the search

    I think the CBT Nuggets one is a really good one for beginners just starting out on the OSI Model. Give it a little practice and those layers will be ingrained into your head.

    I found that it was much easier to remember all the layers, and their order, once I began to grasp an understanding of what each does and what types of devices (or functions) reside in each. The mnemonic devices didn't do much for me. Well, there was one, but I don't think anyone's going to want to hear it. . .

    I've always just remembered PDNTSPA.

    Works for me.

    The OSI model is not obsolete, and yes you should know it.

    So what's a layer 3 switch? Or layer 4-7 inspection? Not everything is only TCP/IP.

    But hey what do I know.

    You seriously said that to a CCIE?

    I hope this is a case of ultra subtle sarcasm.

    K, advertise yourself as a session-layer protocol developer and see who bites.

    Try to getting a job if you tell the employer the OSI model is not important...--

    Awesome

    Brilliant!!

    btw TryPingingTheServer if you're going to make statements like that how about backing them up with your source if the OSI model is so obsolete then why is it still used today and found in literally every text book on networking..

    not strictly OSI but:

    Don't = DATA
    Smoke = SEGMENT
    Pot = PACKET
    For = FRAME
    Breakfast = BITS

    Not to continue this but... SIP

    How many thousands of hours are put into that one protocol? Oh and it's on the session layer of the OSI model. You can also argue it's on the TCP/IP Application layer as well.

    Point is, the OSI model is still a very important model used to describe almost anyting in networking. The TCP/IP model (formerly the DOD model) is far less common even though the TCP/IP protocol stack was developed using it.
