Subsequently, question is, which device is used in Session layer? Data-link layer: Bridges, Modems, Network cards, 2-layer switches. Network layer: Routers, Brouters, 3-layer switches. Transport layer: Gateways, Firewalls. Session layer: Gateways, Firewalls, PC's.
Additionally, how does the session layer work?
The session layer manages a session by initiating the opening and closing of sessions between end-user application processes. This layer also controls single or multiple connections for each end-user application, and directly communicates with both the presentation and the transport layers.
