WAP (Wireless Application Protocol)

WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) lets wireless devices access information and services over the internet. The WAP creates a common “language” for internet-connected devices to communicate and exchange data. WAP is an open, universal protocol and is not owned or controlled by any single company or group.
