Question 1

  • A layer can be removed/changed etc.

  • ... without affecting any other layers

  • Each layer has its own purpose // seperates the purposes // self-contained

  • ... so it does not need to consider what other layers do

  • ... so it can be programmed individually

  • Individual protocols are each smaller/simpler to manage

  • Different layers can interface with different hardware
