From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  protocol stack
  
      A layered set of protocols which work together to
     provide a set of network functions.  Each intermediate
     protocol layer uses the layer below it to provide a service
     to the layer above.
  
     The OSI seven layer model is an attempt to provide a
     standard framework within which to describe protocol stacks.
