wireless application protocol

wireless application protocol
wireless application protocol (WAP)
A specification for wireless communication protocols developed by Ericsson, Motorola, Nokia and Unwired Planet. WAP enables wireless devices to access the internet, email and newsgroups using a common protocol. However, WAP has not been widely adopted, principally because of the very slow data rates offered by 2G (second generation) mobile telephones. This has resulted in only a very limited number of websites offering services which are compatible with the WAP protocols.
