WAP

The acronym WAP can refer both to Wireless Application Protocol, a technical standard that allows access to information over a mobile wireless network, and Wireless access point, a device that allows wireless devices to connect to a wired network.

As a technical standard, it was introduced in the late nineties and strongly pushed by marketers who let customers believe they could have the same performance of fixed Internet access. As customers expectations couldn’t be met, WAP lost its commercial appeal. By now it has disappeared in Europe but continues to be used in Japan, where it competes with i-mode.

The reports listed under Research and Markets’ WAP category look back at the early days of WAP and give insights into what was perceived as one of the biggest Internet revolutions.
