WAP (Wireless Application Protocol)
Note: Many topics at this site are reduced versions of the text in "The Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications." Search results will not be as extensive as a search of the book's CD-ROM.
WAP is a worldwide standard for providing Internet communications and advanced telephony services on digital mobile phones, pagers, personal digital assistants and other "smart" wireless terminals. The WAP Forum developed the protocol as a means of transferring information to mobile wireless devices using a standard interface and display format. A complete set of WAP specifications is available at the WAP Forum Web site listed on the related entries page.
