Introduction to WAP
WAP stands for Wireless Access Protocol. WAP is a standard that allows mobile devices, such as mobile phones and PDA, users to receive internet access. This was designed as a measure to prevent internet protocols from being used in portable devices such as mobile phones and PDAs. This is due to the fact that, internet protocols consume large amounts of bandwidth, which needs to be conserved as bandwidth on such devices is very expensive and speeds are slower than conventional internet access points.
