Data transmission is the movement of data between two or more digital devices. The data is usually in bits. Transmission normally takes place through media. One of the model which best describes the transmission of data is the TCP/IP model. It contains four layers. The first one is the network interface layer which is responsible for receiving and placing TCP/IP packets on the network. The second layer is the Internet layer.
