Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) :

The Wireless Application Protocol (WAP), originally developed by the WAP Forum and currently managed by the OMA is an open, global specification that empowers mobile users with wireless devices to easily access and interact with information and services instantly.

Developing using WAP & xHTML ensures mobile data services interoperability across devices, geographies, service providers, operators, and networks, while allowing businesses to compete through innovation and differentiation.

At WiCoRe we have the capability of building powerful WAP based applications using a variety of backend application development tools, middleware and databases, to make your business be at the forefront of new technology.


Why WAP?

Because of fundamental limitations of power, available spectrum, and mobility, wireless data networks tend to have - Less bandwidth, More latency, Less connection stability, and Less predictable availability. WAP was developed keeping those requirements in mind, with an intention to overcome them.

The purpose of WAP 2.0 and XHTML

The first version of. WAP 2.0 was released in 2001. It has adopted XHTML Basic as the base for its mark-up language. XHTML, developed by the World-Wide Web Consortium (W3C), is the language that will be used to create all content, regardless of whether it is intended for the fixed Internet or the mobile phone world.

WAP means freedom to the end user

WAP offers an easy-to-use and highly portable communications and information tool. Devices using WAP-based micro-browsers can access an array of innovative, value-added services, which are rapidly coming to market. By narrowing the gap between wired and wireless content, XHTML greatly accelerates the pace at which services can be created and improves the usability of wireless services for consumers.

Devices that use WAP
