Wireless Access Protocol (WAP):

What is it?

Wireless Access Protocol, also known as WAP, is a specification that allows people to instantly access and send information through wireless devices/technology such as, telephones, mobiles, laptops, computers, tablets, radio transceivers. It can also be used for internet access, including instant messaging, e-mail and worldwide web.

How does it work?

First, the WAP user selects content (a document) on their device that they want to receive. This creates a request message that is sent to the IP address of the WAP server. The WAP server processes this request and returns the requested document to the IP address assigned to the WAP device. When the WAP device receives the data (document), it can display the document on the screen. The process is quick and simple which is why the WAP user can access information on their device so quickly.
