Where is a hub specified in the OSI model?

[A]. Session layer
[B]. Physical layer
[C]. Data Link layer
[D]. Application layer

Answer: Option B


Hubs regenerate electrical signals, which are specified at the Physical layer.

Physical layer because it is the layer by which physically two devices are connected with a wire.

Physical layer, because hub is not an intelligence device, it is use in connect some devices in physical layer. It is use for broadcasting in lan.

Physical layer because it is the layer which two devices connected with a cable.

Physical layer because in Hub only broadcast of package is possible.

Hub simply replicates the incoming network data to all outgoing ports. It has no intelligence like switch (layer 2 and layer 3) to filter out traffic using mac address (layer 2 switch) or by ip address (layer 3 switch i.e. router).

What is a IP address?

Amit Gupta said: (Dec 19, 2014)  
An IP address is a logical address and it is a 32 bit address. IP address specify a user on the network, and it is a temporary address.

Why the port is used?

Abdul Basit said: (Jan 18, 2015)  
@Mr. Yoga:

Ports are used in transport layer (TCP, UDP, SCTP). Since transport layer is responsible for end to end communication, it must identify the application (or process) who initiated the request.

For hub is there no intelligence to it. Tell me please.

It is used in transport layer.

Physical Layer---------> HR (Hub and Repeater).
Data link Layer---------> SB (Switches and Bridges)
Network Layer-----------> Routers.

How to identify if a Hub is Active or Passive?
