6 4 wireless internet access
6.4 Wireless Internet Access
  • Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA)
    • Each transmission is assigned a specific channel, giving the transmission the benefit of the entire bandwidth within that channel and reducing the possibility that a connection will be broken
    • Able to assign each transmission on the network a unique code to ensure security
  • Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM)
    • Uses Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) which takes multiple calls and assigns each call to a different time slot on the same radio frequency

  • Web clipping
    • Allows users to take relevant pieces of a Web site and deliver it to a wireless device, eliminating excess content and graphics
    • Palm devices use Web clipping
  • Proxy server
    • Lies between client (such as a Web browser) and Web server
    • Query is received by a proxy server controlled by the wireless ISP
    • Proxy server goes to the Web site and “clips” the necessary data
      • The proxy server transmits the data back to your wireless device
      • If the proxy server does not have the information, it passes the request to the regular server

6 5 2 wap and wml
6.5.2 WAP and WML
  • Wireless Application Protocol (WAP)
    • Developed by Nokia, Ericsson, Motorola, etc.
    • A set of communication protocols designed to enable different kinds of wireless devices to communicate and access the Internet
    • Designed to standardize development across different wireless technologies worldwide
    • Intended primarily for Internet-enabled digital phones, pagers and other handheld devices
    • Uses Web sites specifically designed for wireless handheld devices that have small screens and low-bandwidth constraints
6 5 2 wap and wml18
6.5.2 WAP and WML
  • Wireless Markup Language (WML)
    • The scripting language used to create Web content to be delivered to wireless handheld devices, based on XML
    • Removes “unnecessary” content from Web pages
    • WML tags are used to “mark up” a Web page to specify how the page should be formatted on a wireless device
    • WML works with the WAP to deliver the content
    • Similar to HTML, but it does not require input devices
  • Microbrowsers
    • Designed with limited bandwidth and limited memory requirements
    • Access the Web via the wireless Internet
6 5 2 wap and wml19
6.5.2 WAP and WML
  • How wireless Internet works:
    • A WAP gateway, which acts as a proxy server, receives the request, translates it and sends it to the appropriate Internet server
    • Server responds by sending the requested WML document
    • The WAP gateway parses this document's WML (i.e., it analyzes the WML document, checking it for correctness) and sends the proper text to the digital phone
  • Deck

A WML document

  • Card
    • Consists of one user interaction, providing the WML browser with a small, self-contained document for browsing
