Understand Wireless Application Protocol (WAP)

Article By Digamber Rawat on

A communications protocol used for accessing wireless data through most mobile wireless networks is Wireless application protocol (WAP).

Wireless application protocol makes instant connectivity between interactive wireless devices (like cellphones and internet) easier by enhancing wireless specification interoperability.

It can be created using any type of OS. Cellphone users prefer WAP because of its efficiency in delivering electronic information.

The core interface of Wireless application protocol is the datagram protocol. The datagram protocol manages the protocols of the transmission layer of Internet models. It also facilitates operations between wireless mobile networks and platforms and is independent of upper layer protocols. The physical network issues are dealt with by the transport layer. The wireless network access is facilitated by the WAP gateway.
