Is TCP/IP model preferred over OSI model?

OSI model seems to 'preferred" when teaching how to use layers to abstract distinct function processing within network communication processing.  "Real world", unlikely most network stacks really implements all the layers.

TCP/IP model, not much, I believe, taught as to how a network stack might be separated into functional layers, but probably comes much closer to "real world" stack implementations, since TCP/IP are very much real world.

@balaji.bandi I mean do we refer TCP/IP model in present networks?

yes.. @Joseph W. Doherty  given good input ..Cheers!

Perhaps it would help if we could get some clarification about the context of the question. If we are looking more abstractly about how networks operate then the OSI model is probably preferred. It is more extensive in its treatment of network communications. For example its use of the presentation layer. In IBM SNA communications the network process on the host would process how data would be positioned on the user terminal.

If we are looking at it as less abstract and more in terms of how modern networks operate then the TCP/IP model would certainly be preferred.
