I'm little bit confused about how ISP companies deliver their service across border , what protocol do they use and which OSI layer ?

Does anybody have information about this matter ?

The Internet is made of of autonomous systems.

Each of those systems has a number: an ASN (autonomous system number).

Each ASN has IP addresses (prefixes) that they need to announce to other providers.

They exchange this information via BGP (tcp port 179) in layer 3.
