What is internet protocol suite and how it is different?

There are dozens of protocols in the network to communicate, right? But im confused, how internet protocol suite is different from these bunches of protocols like http, smtp, udp, pop, ip, tcp, ftp. It looks like many independent protocols unite and make one large protocol like internet protocol suite, is that right? And is there any other protocols different than internet protocol suite for networking? And what is OSI Model and how it is interliked with all that stuff?
