  • HISTORY.• The WAP Forum was founded in June 1997.• It aimed primarily to bring together the various wireless technologies in a standardised protocol.• In 2002 the WAP Forum was given strength to be more effective and secure.• A re-engineered 2.0 version was released in 2002. View slide
  • Working of WAP.
  • What does WAP work on??? WAP uses WML. WML – Wireless Markup Language formerly called HDML (Handheld Devices Markup Language) It is a language that allows the text portions of Web Pages to be presented on mobile phones via wireless access. WML is used for delivering data to WAP devices.
  • Type of devices that use WAPHandheld digital wireless devices such as mobilephones, pagers, two-way radios, smart phones andcommunicators -- from low-end to high-end.Multimedia Messaging Services(MMS) is a combinationof WAP and SMS. WAP is the initiative to bring cable internet to wireless internet.
  • FUNCTIONS OF WAP.WAP is an application communication protocolWAP is used to access services and informationWAP is for handheld devices such as mobile phonesWAP is a protocol designed for micro browsersWAP enables the creating of web applications for mobile devices.
  • USAGE.  WAP enabled handsets to get instant, direct access to the latest pricing, latest news, competitive information any time, anywhere. Users can get sports results, News downloads.  It can also be used to purchase products and services over the Web. Using WAP users can keep track of their email right from their handset.  Can play online Games, can do music downloads, ect.
  • ADVANTAGES.Easy, and fast access to Internet.WML and WML Script (new language, which is based on HTML).Large choice in mobile phones (most of them support WAP).Can be used to download abstract data types ( videos etc.).Supports most wireless networks (like: CDMA, GSM, PDC, PHS, TDMA etc.).Can be built on any operating system.
  • DISADVANTAGES.Small screens: For web phones, theres an incredibly small viewing.Speed of access: All devices have slow access.Limited availability: Wireless web access is irregular in many areas and entirely unavailable in other areas.Lack of user habit: It takes some patience and overcoming the learning curve to get the hang of it -- connecting, putting in an address, typing. Users just arent used to the idea and protocol yet.
  • SUMMARY.WAP provides a markup language and a transport protocol that open the possibilities of the wireless environment. WAP is an enabling technology through gateway infrastructure deployed in mobile operators network.WAP is independent of OS that means WAP can be implemented on any OS.
