Wireless Protocols

A protocol is a method of managing conversation points between connections. The Internet uses a number of familiar protocols, including TCP/IP (two protocols, the Transmission Control Protocol and the Internet Protocol, which work together to transmit packets and messages over the Internet); HTTP, the Hypertext Transfer Protocol, which supports the exchange of Web-based content via HTML and related pages; and FTP, which manages the transfer of binary and ASCII files over the Internet. There are additional protocols for electronic mail and other Internet functions.

Wireless requires similar methods to establish and maintain connectivity between points of connection and transfer. A number of protocols exist to manage this. By far the most significant at this time is WAP. Another protocol extension that should be of great interest to Web developers is CC/PP.
