The OSI is a general model of networking . OSI stands for open system interconnection. OSI model follows Some standards and rules define by IEEE.
The OSI (Open Systems Interconnect) 7-layer model is based, in-part, on standards published by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers). For example, IEEE standard 802.3 describes Ethernet. In the OSI model, the 802.3 standard exists at layers 1 and 2. ANSWER IEEE is a standards organization to which many hardware and software suppliers both contribute to and agree to use 'standardized' techniques. Ethernet is but only ONE of the many standards, and the OSI is only one of the usage standards.
802.11 and OSI are two different things. The 802.11 committee is responsible for setting the wireless standards for wireless communication. The OSI model is not a standard at all, but a theoretical model of how communications work and utilizes many standards in that process. The 802.11 standards are incorporated in the OSI model, at layer 1 and layer 2 of the model.
