IP Addresses in Relation to OSI Model

IP Addresses in Relation to the OSI Model This lesson focuses on how IP addresses fit into the OSI Model. IP addresses are logically mapped addresses that map to a physical address. IP addresses aren’t mapped to a computer and can be mapped to any MAC we want, they can change and move. They are not hard encoded and are set statically. An IP address is a 32-bit binary address and is divided into four sections called octets, this is because each section has eight numbers. Participants learn how to calculate octets using a specific numerical sequence, starting with one and incrementing our way up by powers of 2.
