1.What does WAP site contain?
A WAP site consists of WAP pages like
a web site. These WAP pages are necessary because
it will allow a user to download information they are interested
in. These website is been specially designed for the WAP phone,
as the speed is very slow, all the data on the pages has to be less
and as per different phones the screens will also be different of
WAP stands for Wireless Application Protocol, basically, it's the way data is transferred and displayed on a mobile phone. It's like a cut-down version of the Internet.The influence of wireless technology is prevalent everywhere in these days. Sending short text messages, making wireless telephone calls, connecting to the Internet and accessing information and using services on the application server have made a strong impact on the hearts and minds of people all across the globe about the emergence and usefulness of wireless technology.
The founder members of wireless technology, having realized the importance of having a set of common wireless protocols that would help put wireless technology development on the fast track and help prevent the proprietary bottlenecks often faced in other areas of development, have embarked on establishing the now famous WAP forum.
WAP means Wireless Application protocol, it is actually used to display data on mobiles phone. It's like a new version of the Internet.It is in fact a version of Internet that can be used any where in the world. This technology has affected people in their life. Sending short massages, connecting Internet and also getting all the information through it. Everywhere in the world people are busy in using this kind of services in mobiles.
WAP defines as a set of normal components that allows communication between mobile workstations and network server.
WAP is a global application that allows mobile users to
access and interact with information and services such as stock
market news and sport headlines, as well as weather updates.
WAP mobile phone software, known as a micro-browser, allows access to the Internet. This will read web pages written in WML (Wireless Mark-up Language). Web Pages in WML are text only and are designed to be viewed on a small screen.WAP brings together new technologies like WML and WML script with other Internet technologies such as XML, UDP and IP. It allows for navigation, data input, hyper-links, images and forms as in traditional computer access to the Web.
WAP is a protocol designed for Micro Browsers. WAP allows web application for mobile devices. WAP not only supports WML but also HTML, ASP, PHP, Java, XML and .net and also many others. These are the compatibility of the WAP.
Despite the high usage of desktop computers for Internet access, wireless computing still scores over traditional computers for Web access for its simplicity and mobile nature. It will be useful for users who wish to keep themselves updated with the latest information on the click of a button.
Handheld digital wireless devices such as mobile phones, pagers, two-way radios, smart phones and communicators can be used for accessing WAP. In short you need to have a WAP enabled mobile. At present Nokia - 7110 and Ericsson R - 380 are the WAP phones available in India.
WAP is intended to offer a global application development platform for services, irrespective of terminal manufacturer or the wireless network being used. It will provide users with many new interactive services such as banking, stock market news, weather information, entertainment services and much more. All within reach of small-screen wireless terminals.
WAP is designed to be used in all mobile networks. Operators will be able to put their own services directly into the terminals. Typical end-user applications might include management of personal telephone profiles, handling of voice, fax and e-mail messages and on-line services for restaurant and taxi booking services and e-broking shortly. At this moment WAP phones are limited by a data transfer rate of 9.6kbps but GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) is expected to launch in the next 6 - 12 months. This will increase data transfer rates to 40.2kbps, which is about the same download speed you can expect on an average landline.Higher data transfer rates mean that GPRS will be able to support streaming audio and video.
Mobile phones with built-in camcorders will mean you can send real-time postcards and video footage over the Internet .The global GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) market is now beginning to take off. With the capability to charge per data bit sent and received, customers will be able to pay only for usage.
GPRS will offer a tenfold increase in data throughput rates, from 9.6kbit/s to 115kbit/s. Using a packet data service; subscribers are always connected and always on line so services will be easy and quick to access.
Yes!!! The transactions done by the WAP users are completely secure as it has an in-built WTLS (Wireless Transaction Layer Security) protocol.
WAP give an interactive interface between the mobile user and Internet, which is not the case with SMS, Where only data retrieval is possible.
WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) is a Protocol that helps
to display Web content in Mobile Phones, which are the easiest
and most accessible device for getting online information.
Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) is an open international
standard for applications that use wireless communication,
WAP is a new idea people living in or out of India using more services with WAP-facility device like cell phone or lap top. A WAP site is necessary if you want a worldwide Internet presence. WAP site was first used in mobiles, but now-a-days it can be seen in computers but used with a special programs.
WML or Wireless Markup Language is a part of WAP, with the use of WML only you can write code for your mobile. Pages in WML are called Decks. This decks acts as pages on the mobile phones.WML application is used to download multiple pages on your mobile but you can see only one page at a time and also can communicate at a high speed rate.
WAP supports most wireless networks. WAP can be seen on few new mobiles, but there is a facility in the mobile that has to be activated first. That facility is called GPRS. To see any site on your mobile GPRS activation is very much necessary. GPRS is a type of Internet that is specially used in mobile phones.
