The OSI model is simply a conceptual model. Its purpose is to create a standardized model that creates different layers of protcols/services where each layer depends on the layer under it. As long as the OSI model is followed, you can have different applications, hardware, wiring, network equipment able to communicate with each other even if different vendors are involed.

it doesnt affect hardware or network components, or at least I dont understand what you mean by that. If you explain a bit more about what question you have regarding the OSI model that would be helpful.
