Wireless Access Protocol (WAP)

Wireless access protocol (WAP) is an industry specification that allows advanced messaging and information services to be delivered to wireless devices.

How does it work?

First, the WAP user select content (a document) on their handset that they desire 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.
