Wireless Application Protocol (by Mintoo Jakhmola)

  1. 1. By: Mintoo Jakhmola Roll No.: A19
  2. 2. The Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) is an application environment and also a set of communication protocols for wireless devices designed to give manufacturer, vendor, and technology-independent access to the Internet and advanced telephony services.
  3. 3. WAP is an open technology based on Internet technologies Allows competition - lower costWAP is backed by major vendors Nokia, Ericsson, Motorola, Microsoft, IBM Future proofWAP Forum is open for all WAP is not “take it or leave it” Over one hundred companies have joined the WAP ForumWAP supports several wireless systems GSM, IS-136, CDMA, PDC etc.
  4. 4.  Browser “Micro browser”, similar to existing web browsers Markup language Similar to HTML, adapted to mobile devices Script language Similar to Javascript, adapted to mobile devices Gateway Transition from wireless to wired world Server “Wap/Origin server”, similar to existing web servers Telephony application interface Access to telephony functions
  5. 5. Client Web Server WAP Gateway WML with WML-Script CGI WML Encoder WML DecksWML- Scripts WSP/WTP WMLScript HTTP etc.Script CompilerWTAI Protocol Adapters Content Etc.
  6. 6.  Portability: A WAP application on one network should be easily portable to a different environment with little or no change. User Experience: WAP aims to enhance the user experience by addressing characteristics of wireless environment:  Narrow bandwidth connection.  Devices with small screens, limited battery use without recharging, limited memory, and limited processing power.
  7. 7.  Cost and Application Development Time Reduction: New services can be added quickly and at a lower cost using WAP.
