What is the main reason the OSI model was created?

  1. To create a layered model larger than the DoD model.
  2. So application developers can change only one layer’s protocols at a time.
  3. So different networks could communicate.
  4. So Cisco could use the model.

Answer: C. So different networks could communicate.

The main reason the OSI model was created was so that different networks could communicate.


The primary goal for developing the OSI model (Open System Interconnections model) is to provide the functionality of interoperating the software programs and communication of products. So we can clearly eliminate all the other options A, B, and D.
