The data link layer is the second layer of the seven-layer OSI model. This layer is the protocol layer. It conveys information between nodes on a network section across the physical layer. The data link layer is concerned with local conveyance of frames between nodes on the similar level of the network. Data link layer works amongs two hosts which are directly associated in some sense. This direct association could be point to point or broadcast. Frameworks on broadcast networks are supposed to be on the same connection.
