  3. 3. Introduction.  WAP refers to WIRELESS APLICATION PROTOCOL.  WAP allows you to access information over a wireless network.  All application loaded onto any wireless system must follow a specific protocol in order to be used by any specific machine, the protocol which they follow is called WAP.
  4. 4. 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.
  5. 5. Working of WAP.
  6. 6. 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.
  7. 7. Type of devices that use WAP Handheld digital wireless devices such as mobile phones, pagers, two-way radios, smart phones and communicators -- from low-end to high-end. Multimedia Messaging Services(MMS) is a combination of WAP and SMS. WAP is the initiative to bring cable internet to wireless internet.
  8. 8. 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.
  9. 9. 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.
  10. 10. 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.
  11. 11. DISADVANTAGES. Small screens: For web phones, there's 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 aren't used to the idea and protocol yet.
  12. 12. 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 operator's network. WAP is independent of OS that means WAP can be implemented on any OS.
