The OSI data link layer is responsible for physical addressing, network topology, error notification, sequencing of frames and flow control. IEEE has defined numerous protocols used with TCP/IP at the OSI data link layer. They are called the IEEE 802 Standards.
Choose one of these IEEE 802 standards and discuss with your classmates the types of network devices and media that you would use to implement the standards in your network. In other words, which network elements would be necessary for the standard you described? Which topology would be represented using these technologies? Finally, discuss collisions relative to this environment.
