L3 – Layer 3

This is also referred to as the OSI (Open Systems Interconnection) Network Layer. It provides the paths for the transfer of data between systems and across networks. The paths between systems may include switched services, and interconnections of multiple subnetworks on route. An example of a protocol operating at the network layer would be IP (Internet Protocol).
