In 1997, several wireless-phone manufacturers organized an industry group called the Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) forum. This group defined the WAP specification in the form of a technical document series that defines standards for implementing wireless-network applications. Hundreds of industries strongly supported the WAP forum for standardization to help the technology become widely adopted. Unfortunately, most of the enthusiasm surrounding WAP has evaporated owing to inherently low channel bandwidth, increased round-trip delays, and a lack of security. WAP technology is primitive and still evolving, and its future depends on how quickly it can improve the transfer rate and effectively enhance its business model.
