What is WAP?

WAP incorporates a simple microbrowser, designed to work on the limited platforms of mobile handsets, with a central WAP gateway that performs the more processor-heavy operations.


More Information about WAP

It defines a standard for data transmission to the handset, WDP (WAP datagram protocol), which is a variation of the internet standard transmission protocol, HTTP (Hypertext Transport Protocol), but redesigned for wireless network characteristics.

WDP mostly differs from HTTP by stripping out much of the text information, replacing it with more efficient binary information for the low-bandwidth connection.

The WAP data can be sent over any available network, be it the circuit-switched connection of TDMA (Time Division Multiple Access) IS-136 or packet-switched GPRS.

To access internet content, the user’s handset sends a request to the WAP gateway, which retrieves the information in either HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) or WML (Wireless Markup Language) from the host server.


What is WML?

  • WML is a variation of HTML, designed specifically to enable viewing on the limited mobile terminal platform.
  • If the information retrieved is in HTML, a filter in the gateway will attempt to convert it to WML.
  • The information will then be transmitted to the handset over whatever network is available, using the transmission protocols described above.
  • WAP is a billing mechanism for customers to buy copyrighted content from WAP sites.
  • The amount is deducted from the mobile phone bill. It’s an alternative payment mechanism to debit or credit cards and premium SMS billing
