Hello all

I have a question that I looking forward to somebody answering me, is the WAP going to disappear with the (GPRS 2.5) and (WCDMA 3) generations? If the answer is no, so how does it work with these technologies? And there is any enhancement with WAP in these technologies?

From your question I think you are kind of jumping the gun.

By WAP, I assume you mean Wireless Access Point.

Just because GPRS and CDMA can move data at a decent rate, doesn't mean that your typical wireless LAN will die.

Are you asking how to integrate GPRS and CDMA into the 802.11 standard?

i dont mean Wireless access point, i mean wireless application protocol (WAP), which uses to provide internet or mobile applications on your telephone. As you know the mobile telephones has some obstacles such small screen, low memory and the most important one is the bandwidth so WAP is invented in order to fit the requirements of mobile telephones, my question is the new generation of mobile networks have improved the bandwidth and speed of mobile networks , so is the WAP still implementing in these networks.

They will co-exist...If we are talking about 3g people are already planning for 4G in Japan..(NTT).and lot of excitement over HSDPA...
All these will co-exist for quite some time...In particular WAP I dont see any issue with it for atleast next 10 years...
