Error control portrays how the system handles and identifies blunders particularly in the information interface layer. In this paper, we exhibit a review of blunder control with respect to mistake discovery and mistake redress. Error control occurs in data link layer. We chiefly examine the kind of error detection systems that is utilized to recognize the mistakes and how the mistakes will be redressed so the collector can remove the genuine information. For most applications, a framework must ensure that the information got are indistinguishable to the information transmitted. Transmission media are prone to error. In a network, the capacity of nodes is different and the rate at which the sender is sending data might not be the same rate at which the receiver accepts it. In this paper, we discuss on designing issues of data link layer. The primary focus is on various error detecting and controlling mechanisms.
