Information on the seven networking layers?

I just became an MCP. I would be very greatful to you if you could provide some details on the seven networking

layers? The Open System Interconnect (OSI) Model defines a generic networking model that divides networking processing into seven layers -- from the physical layer (level 1) to the application layer (level 7).

Here's a very concise cheatsheet/overview:
