This layer provides end-to-end transport services. The network layer allows this layer to establish a logical connection between source and destination host on a network. The transport layer is responsible for establishing sessions and breaking down virtual circuits. The transport layer connections can be connectionless or connection-oriented, also known as reliable. Flow control ensures data integrity at the transport layer by using reliable data transport. Reliable data transport uses connection-oriented sessions between end systems.

LLC must locate network layer protocols and encapsulate the packets. The header of the LLC lets the data link layer know how to process a packet when a frame is received. As mentioned, the MAC layer is responsible for error notification, but this does not include error correction; this responsibility goes to the LLC. When layer 2 frames are received at the end device, the LLC recalculates the checksum to determine if the newly calculated value matches the value sent with the frame. The end device will transmit an acknowledgement signal to the transmitting end unit if the checksum values match.
