ISO stands for International organization of Standardization. This is called a model for Open System Interconnection (OSI) and is commonly known as OSI model. The ISO-OSI model is a seven layer architecture. It defines seven layers or levels in a complete communication system.
Both models are equivalent. OSI is a reference model just used for study purpose and TCP/IP is an implemented model in every digital device nowadays. 
IN TCP/IP model some layers of OSI model is combined e.x application + presentation + session = Applicatilon/ process Layer 

Network layer is used to route packets 
Data Link Layer is responsible to convert packet to frame.
Application layer is responsible to run services DNS, FTP, Telenet etc.
