A protocol that enables wireless phones and other wireless devices to access data over the Internet and/or Intranets and to display that data on WAP-enabled devices. WAP is an open standard and is air-link independent, which means that it works across a wide range of devices, and a broad base of manufacturers and developers is creating products for it. WAP operates on the client server model and requires software on the handset and a WAP gateway/server on the network level.
An emerging standard for communication between wireless Net devices. Get more information at www.wap-forum.com.
Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) is a global standard developed to make Internet services available for mobile users through the use of a mobile browser. Although WAP is based on Internet technology, WAP and the Internet live side by side. That is, WAP devices generally do not access Internet sites, and Internet devices generally do not access WAP sites. WAP is capable of displaying "mini websites", which look simple when compared with normal websites but which already provide a variety of powerful services including banking, ticket purchase, news updates and more.
An open, global application standard that enables wireless devices to instantly and easily access and interact with information and services. Used in mobile computing devices, it features a micro Web browser that displays and transmits specially formatted pages over a broad range of mobile data channels.
The global standard for developing applications over wireless networks, it is a protocol for providing wireless devices with secure access to text-based information, including Web pages, chat, and e-mail.
A stack of protocols, akin to the OSI model or the TCP/IP stack, to implement the layers needed for communication with wireless devices, security, applications, etc, promoted as an open standard by the WAP Forum.
A standard for delivering content, such as Web pages, to mobile devices.
A data transmission standard to deliver wireless markup language (WML) content.
A specification that allows users to access information via wireless handheld devices. These devices usually have small screens
A stripped-down internet-site transfer protocol which allows specially tailored web content to be viewed on any WAP-enabled mobile phone handset. This works over a normal mobile phone call (that is, on the GSM network), meaning the speed of delivery and the amount of content is limited. This was the only web page system available on mobile devices before the development of GPRS.
Specification for a set of communication protocols to standardize the way that wireless devices, such as cellular telephones and radio transceivers, can be used for Internet access, including e-mail, the World Wide Web, newsgroups, and Internet Relay Chat (IRC).
A universal standard created to allow access to the wireless Internet.
A technology that converts Web pages into a format accessible by mobile phones.
An open global specification that allows high-speed, easy Internet access, and other broadband services on mobile wireless devices (such as handphones).
This is a technical standard designed to allow the content of the Internet to be viewed on the screen of a mobile device such as mobile phones, personal organisers and pagers. The information and services available are stripped down to their basic text format to ensure rapid loading to the phone
An open international standard for applications that use wireless communication. The main application based on WAP is Internet access from a mobile device, which can be used, for example, for banking, e-mail exchange, ticket purchase, and news services.
A proposed standard that allows for transfer of data securely between wireless devices, such as PDAs, cellphones, pagers, or other combinations of those...
Wireless Application Protocol, a worldwide standard for applications used on wireless communication networks.
WAP is a specification for a set of communication protocols to standardise the way that wireless devices, such as cellular telephones and radio transceivers, can be used for Internet access, including e-mail, the web, and newsgroups.
Protocol designed to translate World Wide Web information and packet data for display on cellular telephones and other handheld devices.
The technical specifications required to communicate and display content on wireless devices, such as WAP-enabled cell phones. Relevant for m-learning.
The de facto worldwide standard for providing Internet communications and advanced telephony services on digital mobile phones, pagers, digital assistants and other wireless terminals. WAP is designed to provide users of mobile terminals with rapid and efficient access to the Internet.
Set of protocols that lets users of mobile phones and other digital wireless devices access Internet content, check voice mail and e-mail, receive text of faxes and conduct transactions.
Communications protocol that allows wireless mobile devices to access the Internet and its services such as the Web and eâ€‘mail, using a client/ server network. 15.38 wireless designer, 16.4
An open, global specification that empowers mobile users with wireless devices to easily access and interact instantly with information and services.
Wireless Application Protocol is the connection standard for delivering information to wireless devices such as mobile phones and PDAs.
An open standard for communication between handsets and the Internet. WAP is a wireless communications environment for delivering web data to wireless terminals with minimal screen display. An initiative started by Unwired Planet, Motorola, Nokia and Ericsson to develop a standard for wireless content delivery on the next generation of mobile communicators. WAP strips all but graphics for display on small screens, such as mobile phones. A mini-browser is an integral part of WAP enabled phones. WAP enabled phones first appeared in Europe at the end of 1999.
Communication protocols for wireless appliances (such as mobile phones) which facilitate access to internet-based services.
