Logical Link Control layer (LCL layer)

Contributor(s): Steve Curtis

The Logical Link Control (LCL) layer is one of two sublayers of the Data-Link layer in the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model of communication. The LCL layer is concerned with managing traffic (flow and error control) over the physical medium. The LCL layer also identifies a line protocol, such as SDLC, NetBIOS, or NetWare, and may also assign sequence numbers to frames and track acknowledgements.

The other Data-Link sublayer is the Media Access Control layer.
