Are additional protocols added to a protocol suite to complete the layers or is a suite cover all of the layers?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Using the TCP/IP protocol suite as an example, it is comprised of 4 individual layers that map directly to the 7 layers of the OSI reference model.

Every individual protocol maps to one of these layers. These protocols are constantly being updated and added to as new applications are created.

Also upper layer protocols rely on the lower layers, for instance, BGP (application) relies on TCP (transport) which relies on IP (internet) then say ethernet (link).

I hop this answers your question.
