Wireless Application Protocol (WAP)
The WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) is currently a hot subject in the world of mobile telephony. Almost all operators of mobile telephone networks are developing the infrastructure needed to allow them to offer WAP to their customers.Information providers, in turn, are busy making existing information suitable for distribution via WAP. The first WAP terminals are already available. Although the Internet has been available to private users for only a few years, it has become an indispensable part of modern society. Previously, you would go to a library to look for background information, but now the Internet is by far the most important source of information. A natural consequence is that more and more users want to have access to the Internet 24 hours a day (at home, at work and while travelling).
