The connection mode
transfer in OSI requires an agreement between 3 parties,hence it is slow.The

security and coding because of its complexities.

    Welcome to ITKE, hgebretsadik! I would suggest checking out SearchNetworking's definition on OSI reference model. That should help you out.

    Sorry, the question doesn't make any sense.

    Can you explain what you want to know, or the kind of answer you expect?

    Disadvantages are really only meaningful in contrast to alternatives. (If there is no alternative at all, it can't really have a disadvantage. Likewise for 'advantage'.) So, in contrast with or comparison to... what?

    But the question seems like basic research that Google searches are good for. It doesn't seem to present a technical problem that we can help solve.
