The presence of a "Type" field in the original Ethernet header is the main thing that distinguishes it from the protocols that were subsequently developed by the IEEE LMSC, since all of those subsequent protocols rely on the LLC sub-layer protocol (and possibly the SNAP sub-layer protocol) to identify the contents of the frame.
The IEEE defines the MAC sub-layer to be the lower portion of the OSI-RM's Data Link layer, and is concerned with implementing medium-specific operations to ensure that data is properly transmitted and received. A typical protocol stack, such as that depicted in Figure 2-7, shows the relative positions of the LLC and MAC sub-layers. In the IEEE LMSC's protocol architecture, the MAC sub-layer consists of only one protocol. Figure 2-7 also places the Data Link layer in the context of the IETF's TCP/IP protocol stack.

Before exploring the Data Link layer in more detail, this is a good time to mention the other major protocol suite (which has effectively supplanted the OSI protocol suite); namely, the TCP/IP family of protocols.
