933MHz versions of Pentium-3 computers. and rename it.Windows NT is another Microsoft operating system that is beginning to really catch on because of it's networking capabilities.Another job the OS does is run application software. and many of the world's servers run *NIX. and coming equipped with all the hardware you'll need. *NIX systems are now becoming a little more popular as desktops with the invention of programs like X Windows. Macs have the history of being easy to use. What is an Operating System (OS)? An operating system (from here on OS) is basically software that makes everything in the computer work together smoothly and efficiently (hopefully!). Windows NT . and there are many applications that run on it. These are commonly called "workstations". This was one of the first GUI's to become popular. Basically. its controls the "overall" activity of a computer. Through the OS you are able to do a number of things to data including copy. Operating systems have three basic jobs they must do: (a)Control Hardware . Unix is by far the oldest of the operating systems. having been in existence for a good 20 years. etc. games.The operating system controls all the parts of the computer and attempts to get everything working together. This would include Microsoft Office. (b) Run Applications . *NIX systems are still the kings of the networking world. Types of Operating Systems There are a vast number of OS's out there. 11 . 500MHz of the Pentium-2 computers and 667MHz. It has an easy-to-use Graphical User Interface (GUI). WinZip. you can get processing speeds of 600MHz. etc.This is the operating system found on the Macintosh brand of computers.The OS makes it easy for you to organize your computer. delete. *NIX . UNIX is a command prompt OS. move. ©Manage Data and Files .This is what you will find on most new PC's today. It is a very popular OS. which allows *NIX systems to have a GUI. Let's briefly go over few of the more common ones: Windows 95/98 . Macintosh System 7/8 . Microsoft is trying to slowly phase out Windows 95/98 and replace it with some form of NT.This includes the OS's like UNIX. LINUX. much like the now defunct Microsoft DOS operating system.Note: Now days. This makes it much easier to find and organize what you have.

It is very compact and light. the computer must be unplugged from the electrical outlet. The variation of the components inside the system unit is what makes one personal computer more powerful than another personal computer. Most system units consist of the computer case with a power supply. motherboard. All this decision is based on is your personal preference. floppy disk drive. This includes the case and all the hardware that is installed inside. Param 10000 developed by CDAC. CD-ROM drive. Be sure to use the Clickable List to learn more about each topic! More About the System Unit The system unit is the computer. System Unit 2. 12 . Currently only five nations have the capability to make supercomputers and India is one among them. The two styles that we have to choose from are a desktop or a tower case. video adapter. Pune is already in use for weather and military purposes. The case can be opened by unscrewing the case screws and sliding off the cover. Monitor 3.What is a supercomputer? Super computer is a computer that can process data millions of times faster than ordinary computers. input/output ports. The most common among them is called the laptop computers. Keyboard The System Unit The system unit is the entire computer as a whole. The case also comes with the power supply needed to power itself. which can process billions of data at a time. The Case The first decision we have to make is the type of case that we want our computer to have. memory (RAM). and soundboard. One type of case will not out-perform the other. What is the latest in computers? There are lot of versions of computer you can see in the market at present. It consists of special microprocessors. disk controller. along with the other components that we add. Sam prefers a mid-size tower case. Powerful electronic circuitry that makes up the computer is housed inside the case. Here the monitor of the computer is that of LCD (liquid crystal display). Hardware tutorial The three main components of a personal computer: 1. To avoid. The rest of these pages will cover what is contained in the system unit. hard drive.

The CPU contains the control unit and the arithmetic/logic unit (ALU). Again. without a CPU. All the hardware components are installed in the bays of the case. Usually not all the bays are filled when you purchase a new computer. the motherboard is generally the one at the bottom of the computer's case. the controller circuitry. The network cable will then attach to the card. The most commonly used connectors are the ISA and PCI expansion slots. The CPU is one of the most important elements of the personal computer. If you have a towerconfiguration case. Power supplies are rated in watts. Every system has one: The motherboard is the largest circuit board in your computer. the faster the processor is. A fan installed in the power supply helps to keep the computer and its components from overheating. Microprocessor On the motherboard. and a typical computer case has a 200 watt power supply inside. you may want to add a ZIP drive. CPU's come in different speeds measured in Megahertz (MHz). The higher the number. It generally houses the CPU chip (brains of your computer). for example. There are many different company's that produce 13 . the bus. the address bus. If you have a desktop computer. tape back up. This is a section of a PCI modem. it's along one of the vertical sides.htm> More About the Mainboard The main circuit board. The mainboard has connectors called expansion slots that will interface with other printed circuit boards such as sound and video adapter cards. which is the largest single printed circuit board found inside the system unit. is called the motherboard or mainboard.More About the Case A power supply is installed in the case to provide the voltage needed to power the electronic circuits in the system unit.

and one of the best known is the SoundBlaster by Creative Labs. Going out and looking at all the different types will help you find what you want. modems do for computers what a telephone does for humans. or evaluate the monitor that may come with our system unit. A modem is a device that you connect to your computer and to a phone line that allows the computer to talk to other computers through the phone system. Types Of Monitors When we talk about screens. A 64-bit AGP video card with 4Mb of RAM is a great choice for your computer. More About Monitors Monitors come in many different shapes and forms. Understanding the concepts of a good monitor will help us to either purchase one. resolution. The Monitor All computers are connected with some type of display. Basically. and size. An AGP card will allow game and 3D application developers to store and retrieve larger. Sam says that this is mainly common in businesses and in University Computer Labs where everyone can access the same server. The Modem In order to go online and surf the web. The Sound Card Installing a soundboard is the only way to create quality sound output. or check E-mail. We mainly use a monitor. without incurring a dramatic performance hit. refresh rate. A "multimedia" PC usually includes a sound card. Some of these key concepts that need to be looked at are: pixels. The video card interfaces the monitor to the mainboard. When we purchase a new computer. you will need a modem to connect to an Internet Service Provider (ISP). a monitor is not always included. It provides high-quality stereo sound.The Video Card The Pentium II mainboard has an Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) expansion slot for installing an AGP video card. A NIC is an adapter card that physically connects one computer to a network cable and to another computer that has the same type of NIC. there are two different types to choose from: 15 . The Network Card If you would like to hook your computer up to another computer you will need a Network Interface Card (NIC). Monitors are available in different types and sizes. more realistic textures in system memory rather than video memory.

(Also called vertical frequency or vertical refresh rate. Refresh rates are measured in Hertz (HZ). The higher the depth. The finer the dot pitch. green. How much depends on the desired colour depth you want your monitor set at. The more VRAM your video card has. A screen image consists of between 480. This is just like a television.If you look close. Each pixel consists of three colors: red. the better the resolution. This is measured in bits. The video card also sends out the refresh signal. There are now SVGA (Super VGA) and XGA with resolutions all the way up to 1600 x 1200. The number of colors. more colors are able to be produced. The terms are not used much anymore. the more the amount of colors can be displayed. Resolution: The greater the number of pixels in the screen. which are arranged in rows across the screen. thus controlling the refresh rate. which is called VGA. we mainly look at the resolution. the better image quality you will have.25mm dot pitch. which means times per second.000 and 1. and this is quite good. LCD (Liquid Crystal Display): flat and soft displays. The higher the refresh rate. Dot pitch: This is a measurement of how close together the phosphor dots are on the screen. Video RAM (VRAM): All video cards have some memory.000 pixels. They are called "soft" displays. because the image appears softer than the CRT. which can be displayed.CRT (Cathode Ray Tube): the most common type of screen. The prices of these screens range higher than CRT's.28mm dot pitch. look for the smaller number. These concepts consist of the following: Pixels: The screen image is made of pixels (tiny dots). but the screen image design is still based on the same concepts. is called the colour depth. Some have a 0. but actually it flickers every time the electron beam hits the phosphorcoated dots. The greater the resolution. and blue (RGB). It may look like a steady picture.920. a big glass bottle. you can see them. 16 . Refresh Rate: The screen image is refreshed many times per second. Most monitors today have a 0. the sharper the image will be. Concepts Behind Monitors The principles behind these screen types are different.) Colour Depth: Each pixel can display a number of different colors. The lowest screen resolution on modern PC's is 640 x 480 pixels. This is the traditional picture tube. the screen image appears steadier.

Editing of graphics can also be done with the help of this software. Autoview. which has got multiple utilities ranging from surfing the internet to making documents. Adobe acrobat. What is computer software? It is a program..

Real numbers generally follow the standards of the IEEE (The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers). A special version (GEOTIFF) can contain ground co-ordinates associated with the image. For complete portability you should use a universal format like ASCII (text only) or HTML (allows formatting). which provides both 4 byte and 8 byte floating point types. JPEG: Joint Photographic Experts Groups. making it applicable for satellite or map data. Computers store reals as an exponent and mantissa. Some of the most common brands are Adobe PhotoShop. Real arithmetic requires much more computer processing power than integer arithmetic. there can be open standards or proprietary formats. Computers store all data as a series of ones and zeros. TIFF: Tagged Image File Format. Image formats: BMP: the standard Windows Bit Map Picture format. GIF: Graphics Interchange format. pioneered for CompuServe. you will see a series of happy faces and other symbols that mean nothing to you. which is why computers typically has a math coprocessor or floating point unit (FPU) designed to perform the calculations in hardware. with both compressed and uncompressed variants. For numbers this leads to a fundamental difference between integers (the counting numbers) and real or floating point numbers. Integers can be stored exactly with a series of ones and zeros.Photo editing software These softwares help in manipulation of graphics. FoxPro This software helps in creating and maintaining huge database. Within binary files. paintshop pro and Corel draw. 19 . or open a binary format file. Different word processors use different symbols to indicate formatting--thus Microsoft Word may or may not be able to read and correctly format a Word Perfect file. If you try to print. What is a computer and how it works? Computers can store information in either human-readable format or in machine readable or binary format. which allows precision to a given number of decimal places depending on the number of bytes used. but real numbers must be approximated. a compressed format in the public domain.

MP3: current MPEG format for sound only. Byte: eight bits. Megabyte: 10242=1. the native Windows format. often loosely considered to be 1.000. where only the notes and instruments used are stored.000 bytes. Very compact for instrumental music. This movie format can only use 256 colors and does not support sound. MID: MIDI.824 bytes. but cannot store vocals or sound effects. and files can become very large very fast. or numbers from 0 to 255. a compressed format. but many struggling bands want to distribute their music to build up a following.073. with very good compression.

These include the alphabet (upper and lower case). 24 bit (true color): 8 bits for each color.000 bytes.000.Terabyte: 10244=1. Mixing all three should give black. black. and some control characters (tab.776 bytes.511. An ASCII coding that using special codes (<B> and </B> to start and stop boldface. HTML: Hyper Text Mark up Language. 256 color: the 256 colors can be selected from the 16 million the monitor can display. line return. or a total of 16. A code that uses 128 values to transfer text data between computers. This does not divide evenly into three colors. Standard word processors use proprietary codes for formatting that usually cannot be readily transformed to other machines. 16 bit color is common.000. This is the limit that can be displayed by most monitors.216. IBM extended this character set to include some international characters and box drawing.099. Most users cannot differentiate 21 . but blue generally contains much less information than red or green and this provides very acceptable results. the monitors use three electron guns. Cyan is a light blue (the mixture of green and blue). often loosely considered to be 1.627.777. yellow mixes red and green and magenta is purple (the mixture of red and blue). although in some cases Windows forces about 30 of the colors to be its standard choices. but this generally looks bad and most printers also include a fourth ink. Since computers generally use bytes for efficient storage. 16 color: the 16 colors can be selected from the 16 million the monitor can display. 16 bit (high color): since storage must be in 8 bit (or byte) increments. CYM model: printers use a cyan-yellow-magenta model.

these can be burned once. DVD: store the equivalent of 5-6 CD-ROMs. so media cost is negligible.44 MB Zip disks: original version stores 100 MB. Only available in internal models. which are faster.anywhere near this number of colors. and thus are a lot more costly than plain CD-R. these can be written over. Made by IOMEGA. 22 .

The Internet is quickly becoming the 8th wonder of the world and a mega commerce platform. if you are a writer. As a first time author. GETTING PUBLISHED-FEW HARD FACTS Many first time authors attempt to get published by sending off their manuscripts to big publishing houses for review and hopefully a contract to publish their book.000 new users come online every day. Another problem with traditional publishing is the time factor. you'll have to be ready with the money for this yourself and your publisher may want to know how much you have budgeted and a copy of your marketing plan. Traditional publishers have 3 selling seasons. Most publishing contracts. The truth is. they sit around waiting months for the dreaded rejection notice. Most publishers operate within an 18month production cycle. and approx. nobody cares who publishes your book. Most first timers believe that the publisher will promote their book. but that's it. they pull it off the shelves to be replaced by other books for that season. You'll be responsible for promoting your book at your own expense if you can't negotiate a favorable promotion budget in the contract. Meanwhile. 87 . This means your publish date won't even begin until after a publisher accepts it. They are under the impression that getting published by a big gun publisher carries with it a certain amount of prestige.WHY PUBLISH E-BOOKS? The real question should be. So. you will lose most or even all control of your book. This means your book will be on the shelves for 4 months. give the publisher a free hand in any changes to your book they see fit. after that. especially with new authors. and sometimes no notice shows up at all. you may not be able to negotiate much of a promotion budget into your first contract. the publisher puts up the money to manufacture the book and has rep's get the book into the stores. why aren't you? There are over 130 million Internet users in North America alone. It can take as long as 3 years to get your book published. Whatever time you have invested shipping your manuscript around will be that much longer before your book gets to press. This is the easiest method to earn money and bring satisfaction to your soul. 70. The truth is. Once you agree to turn your book over to a publisher.

000 to $15.000 to get started. plus if they do accept it they take a healthy percentage of sales for their efforts. Review columnists are well aware of the problems associated with vanity presses. The vanity publisher will be more than happy to look at your manuscript and even give you glowing reviews. agents will reject well over 90% of submitted book manuscripts. "Nonsense!".000 to $30. you'll still need to gather the information needed to do it yourself. You really have to shop around for a good one and even then. "It will never fly!".000 and not readily available to most struggling authors. They scoffed 88 . Some first time authors will opt for the vanity publisher. depending on the material. or distribution. even with the ferocious tenacity of a wolverine it won't happen overnight. as a first time author you really have no bargaining muscle. This doesn't include things like editing. An author using a vanity press will pay a lot more than printing costs and will only receive around 40 percent of the retail price of the book. This has some truth to it but here to there are problems. promotion.000 will probably cover printing. Some new authors opt to hire literary agents to go to bat for them thinking that with an agent their bound to get published. they bellowed.000 minimum needed to get started? $13.Your left over books will have to be "remaindered" meaning they will be sent to warehouse and generally sold in bulk at a fraction of the original manufactured price. The only problem would be gathering the know how and of course the $15. the best so far would be to self publish your book. $13. So what if you don't have $15. The only thing the vanity publisher wants to do for you is manufacture your book. depending on the book. but this I'm afraid is false praise. This is generally a 15% commission. On top of all this.000? What's next? How in the world are you going to get published? Just a few short years ago the idea of distributing books in a digital format seemed a ridiculous notion to many. Copies sent to columnists for book reviews are generally trashed as soon as they see a subsidy publisher’s name on your book.000 or more. Getting published can really become a daunting task to first time authors. it's still $13. Even though self-publishing is a good choice. But. promotion.000 to $15. and some other expenses for about 4000 copies of a 100 to 250 page book. and here's why. So the book will probably not be available in bookstores. and approx. Of all the choices before you. This service will cost you around $12. They know there was little attention paid to editing and that little if any promotional effort will take place. The large publishers in their shining glass towers ruled.

LOWER COSTS With no printing. But. Deciding which one you are is very important because it may determine what kinds of books you begin to write. people will always have wants and needs. Enter E-Book Publishing The world is changing at a very rapid clip. a lot less will be from now on. at this point. At no time in our recent history have book authors been in a better position to compete heads up with the Big Boys. storing. publishers can sell the same quality at reduced prices to consumers. What are the advantages of publishing e books? SAVES RESOURCES With e Book publishing. It's a classic win-win situation. They would hurl the hard work of many would be authors to the circular file like flicking a piece of lint from a $900 dollar suit. OK. However. is greatly diminished. ever since the Internet explosion a few years ago the pace has been just a blur. They sat upon their thrones like they always have. As the population continues to warm up to the Internet. decade after decade deciding on what you and I will read next. would be a wild guess at best. We will never know how many great books have been dispatched to the dumpster. it will become second nature for them to actively seek out the things they want and purchase them over the Internet. The only difference will be that your books will be in a digital format. but one thing is for sure. electricity. I got a little carried away. So rapid in fact.at the very idea of such a scenario. but the bottom line is. This is extremely important for a couple of reasons. before you do anything else you should determine whether or not you want to make a living as a book author. etc. while at the same time earning more profits. you'll have a very large and responsive market. diesel fuel. while others want to write books for a living. The dream of being published once again dashed upon the jagged rocks of this "Impenetrable Conglomerated Fortress". Some authors just like to write. So if you are going to write books and sell them on the Internet. To suggest any kind of logical destination for the Net. The number 1 & 2 selling items on the Net in the United States are "Software and Books". or shipping costs. We can speculate all we want. 89 . in that order. the use of our resources such as Tree's. that it's really not possible to predict anything at this point.

SPEEDY DELIVERY Just download your book, and start reading. FedEx is a giant snail compared to this. In the time it takes you to start your car to go get a book, you could be reading it with no "Shipping and Handling" charges. PORTABILITY With the new electronic reading devices hitting the market, you can carry 20 or 30 maybe more, large books in a single device. A great way to travel. Manufacturers of reading devices are making them waterproof so you can read your books in the tub, no more wet pages.

A brief introduction to cyber laws, cyber crimes & hacking
The biggest problem with the Internet is that, nobody is in charge of it and so, nobody can control it. Now days, using computer people create hell of a trouble all over the world. How they do it? Read on…… A word about cyber laws Although no government, individual or organization can control Internet, the governments of different countries have formulated "cyber laws" which are the laws, rules and etiquette to be followed, while using internet in that particular country. All the citizens of that country are bound to obey these laws, else they will be penalized under law. Recently, some "hackers" spent months in jail for breaking into some network and manipulating the data. If anybody misuses Internet or hurt another person directly or indirectly, then that person is tried in court in accordance with the cyber laws in that country. If you want to know more about cyber laws and cyber crimes, visit the following American government's web site. www.cybercrime.gov The major cyber crimes are as follows Hacking Cyber squatting Sending junk mails (spamming) Spreading unlawful, harmful and misleading information Intrusion onto privacy Hacking: It is an act by which, an unauthorized person accesses your network system by breaking your password, using various software tools. Recently, a boy from Sweden devised a method by which anybody can access any e-mail address in the web site www.hotmail.com without entering the password. Soon the web site was shut down and the company lost millions of dollars within few hours. A person who commits the act of hacking is called " hacker". Once the hacker enters into your network, he can do anything ranging from manipulation to deletion of the data. Banks and stores doing online stores are most vulnerable to hacking. If such establishments are hacked, they not only loose revenue, but also the customers.

If you want to know more about hackers and hacking resources, read through the resources given below. Hackers are also called cyber terrorists and the rendezvous conducted by them are called underground conventions. Cyber squatting: It is an act by which a third person registers the domain name of a famous person or reputed company (registered company) before being registered by the owners them selves. It is against the rules. Nobody can register the domain names like that. Whoever does it can be penalized under law. Recently somebody registered the domain name www.juliaroberts.com and the Hollywood actress "Julia Roberts counted stars. A few days before somebody from Mumbai registered the domain name " www.pramodmahajan.com" and the real Pramod Mahajan, the IT minister of India counted stars. But mind it, if you do it, you become a cyber criminal on the spot. Sending junk mails (spamming): Junk mails are unsolicited mails, which come to your e-mail account. If they come in large numbers, they will choke your e-mail account. Recently I had to leave an e-mail account registered with "yahoo" because it got filled with junk mails from all over the world. You can install junk mail filter software to filter all the unsolicited e-mails entering your e-mail account. Suppose anybody is caught for deliberately sending junk mails, he can be prosecuted under law. Spreading anti-national & harmful information through net This is also banned by law. Now days, you can see almost all the terrorist organizations all over the world have got their own web sites through which they spread the message of devil in this peaceful world. You can also see thousands of hate clubs, insane and sex clubs, which spoils the upcoming youth. The hate clubs on racism are the most prevalent in the net. Those who promote such activities can be penalized under "cyber laws". Intrusion into privacy Using Internet, a third person can easily harass you, if your details are available online. The finest example to this is the cheating through credit card or credit card fraud. Suppose anybody knows your credit card number and the PIN number, the result is that, somebody will buy goods and the bill will come to you to make you count stars. So be very careful while you disclose your details online. Just remember that many people are watching you without your knowledge. Recently in America a man murdered a girl, after collecting her details from the Internet.

WAP bridges the gap between the mobile world and the Internet as well as corporate intranets and offers the ability to deliver an unlimited range of mobile value-added services to subscribers—independent of their network. Now read on and see how it works. Motorola. transaction. The changes taking place in the field of Internet and computer technology is faster than that of light. Using this technology. you can receive e-mails and see web pages at any time. In every 18 months. In a cell phone like device. Recently a company named AMD came out with a processor of 1000Mhz. What is wireless Internet? In Western Europe and America.This phenomenon is going to revolutionize the internet utility. know the news around the world and the share values etc. Mobile subscribers can access the same wealth of information from a pocket-sized device as they can from the desktop. there is a very important invention-taking place in the PC hardware. session. Recently a modem was developed with a processing speed of 2 giga bytes per second. 147 . and terminal.. HTML (the contents of the web pages) is converted into a language called XML and is displayed in the screen of the handy device. The WAP specifications define a set of protocols in application. More and more utilities are invented day by day. Ericsson. Nokia. by the time I explain one. a new invention has already taken place. using which mobile Internet and cell phones receiving e-mails work. you can receive emails in mobile phones and carry a laptop with an Internet connection anywhere in the globe. If you want to know more about WAP. How it works? Recently a new technology in communication has emerged and it is known as wireless application protocol (WAP). bearer. But still let me tell you about the latest trend in Internet. and Unwired Planet founded the WAP Forum in the summer of 1997 with the initial purpose of defining an industry-wide specification for developing applications over wireless communications networks.Latest trend in Internet The face of Internet is changing day by day. wireless Internet has already invaded the market. The latest trend in Internet can't be defined exactly because. The message transmission takes place with the help of satellites like that of wireless phones. Using this technology. it is called WAP. WAP is a global standard and is not controlled by any single company.

WAP will enable content and application developers to grasp the tagbased WML that will pave the way for services to be written and deployed within an operator's network quickly and easily. software houses. and companies developing services and applications for mobile devices. manufacturers. customized information services. through interoperability testing. Mobile consumers are becoming more hungry to receive increased functionality and value-add from 148 . such as interfaces to voice mail and prepaid systems. cut costs. and mobile to telefax access. Based on the Internet model. and transport layers.wapforum. visit the WAP Forum at http://www. and content developers to develop advanced differentiating services and applications including a microbrowser. content providers. manufacturers. For more information. the wireless device contains a microbrowser. such as account management and billing inquiries. The WAP specifications continue to be developed by contributing members. while content and applications are hosted on Web servers. enabling the provision of end to end turnkey solutions that will create a lasting competitive advantage. have brought WAP into the limelight of the mobile data marketplace with fully functional WAP–enabled devices (see Figure 1). and increase the subscriber base both by improving existing services. This will allow operators to differentiate themselves from their competitors with new.security. Content Providers Applications will be written in wireless markup language (WML). and facilitating an unlimited range of new value-added services and applications. who. WAP promises to decrease churn. scripting facilities. build consumer loyalty. operators. service providers. and applications providers to meet the challenges in advanced wireless service differentiation and fast/flexible service creation. New applications can be introduced quickly and easily without the need for additional infrastructure or modifications to the phone. e-mail. content providers have immediate access to a wealth of potential customers who will seek such applications to enhance the service offerings given to their own existing and potential subscriber base. There are now over one hundred members representing terminal and infrastructure manufacturers. and increase revenues. BENEFITS OF WAP Operators For wireless network operators. carriers. which enable operators. which is a subset of extensible markup language (XML). As WAP is a global and interoperable open standard.org WAP also defines an application environment (WAE) aimed at enabling operators. WAP is an interoperable framework. World Wide Web (WWW)–to–mobile-handset messaging. Using the same model as the Internet.

and WAP opens the door to this untapped market that is expected to reach 100 million WAP–enabled devices by the end of the year 2000. This push mechanism affords a distinct advantage over the WWW and represents tremendous potential for both information providers and mobile operators. high latency. secure access to relevant Internet information and services such as unified messaging. Standard HTML content cannot be effectively displayed on the small-size screens of pocket-sized mobile phones and pagers. these developers will likely acknowledge the huge potential of the operators' customer bases. users will have significant freedom of choice when selecting mobile terminals and the applications they support. and low-cost environment. 3. wireless Internet access has been limited by the capabilities of handheld devices and wireless networks. thus. requiring large amounts of mainly text-based data to be sent. Intranet information such as corporate databases can also be accessed via WAP technology. This presents developers with significant revenue opportunities. Internet standards such as hypertext markup language (HTML). and IP. WAP utilizes Internet standards such as XML. Many of the protocols are based on Internet standards such as hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP) and TLS but have been optimized for the unique constraints of the wireless environment: low bandwidth. Why Choose WAP? In the past. End Users End users of WAP will benefit from easy. 149 . TLS and transmission control protocol (TCP) are inefficient over mobile networks. It is expected that the ISPs will exploit the true potential of WAP. HTTP. user datagram protocol (UDP). In addition. they will be willing and able to offer competitive prices for their content. banking. Users will be able to receive and request information in a controlled. a fact that renders WAP services more attractive to consumers who demand more value and functionality from their mobile terminals. fast. As the initial focus of WAP. Web content developers will have great knowledge and direct access to the people they attempt to reach.their mobile devices. the Internet will set many of the trends in advance of WAP implementation. and entertainment through their mobile devices. Because a wide range of handset manufacturers already supports the WAP initiative. WAP's push capability will enable weather and travel information providers to use WAP. and less connection stability.

1. Summary WAP provides a markup language and a transport protocol that open the possibilities of the wireless environment and give players from all levels of the industry the opportunity to access an untapped market that is still in its infancy. and GPRS. independent of the bearer and network. including short message service (SMS). bringing sophisticated solutions to mobile users. All network technologies and bearers will also be supported. digital European cordless communication (DECT). and code division multiple access (CDMA). the future for WAP looks bright. and navigation may be performed with one hand. As WAP is based on a scalable layered architecture.900 MHz.800. circuit-switched cellular data (CSD). These include global system for mobile communications (GSM) 900. FLEX. will bridge the gap between the mobile world and the Internet. cellular digital packet data (CDPD). USSD. WAP is an enabling technology that. They make optimum use of small displays. This makes it possible to introduce new bearers or to use new transport protocols without major changes in the other layers. WAP sessions cope with intermittent coverage and can operate over a wide variety of wireless transports. Backed by 75 percent of the companies behind the world's mobile telephone market and the huge development potential of WAP. with the additional aim of targeting multiple networks. time-division multiple access (TDMA). each layer can develop independently of the others. and 1. through gateway infrastructure deployed in mobile operator's network.WAP utilizes binary transmission for greater compression of data and is optimized for long latency and low bandwidth. WML and wireless markup language script (WMLScript) are used to produce WAP content. WAP content is scalable from a two-line text display on a basic device to a full graphic screen on the latest smart phones and communicators. The lightweight WAP protocol stack is designed to minimize the required bandwidth and maximize the number of wireless network types that can deliver WAP content. The bearer-independent nature of WAP has proved to be a long-awaited breath of fresh air for an industry riddled with multiple proprietary standards that have suffocated the advent of a new wave of mobile-Internet communications. interim standard (IS)–136. Multiple networks will be targeted. 150 . personal communications service (PCS).

over and above voice communications and are beginning to demand the industry to move from a fixed to a mobile environment. the drive toward new and innovative devices is quickly gathering pace. GSM currently does not offer the data rates that would allow mobile multimedia and Web browsing. the boom in mobile communications would be phenomenal. with its distinct time slots serving to manage data packets in a way that prevents users from being penalized for holding standard circuit-switched connections.The Future of WAP The tremendous surge of interest and development in the area of wireless data in recent times has caused worldwide operators. in an area notorious for the diversity of standards and protocols. GPRS is seen by many as the perfect partner for WAP. and the role of personal digital assistants (PDAs) and other mobile terminals. Initially. Handset Manufacturers and WAP Services It is expected that mobile terminal manufacturers will experience significant change as a result of WAP technology—a chance that will impact the look and feel of the hardware they produce. which will dictate the nature and speed of early applications. Indeed. The handsets themselves will contain a microbroswer that will serve to interpret 151 . and content developers to collaborate on an unprecedented scale. The main issues faced by this arm of the industry concern the size of mobile phones. mobile users until now have been forced to accept relatively basic levels of functionality. as well as other emerging highbandwidth bearers. usability. the WAP browser should do for mobile Internet what Netscape did for the Internet. the reality of access speeds equivalent or higher to that of a fixed-line scenario become evermore believable. carrying the functionality of a fixed environment with it. services are expected to run over the well-established SMS bearer. infrastructure and terminal manufacturers. Indeed. industry players from content developers to operators can explore the vast opportunity that WAP presents. The collaborative efforts of the WAP Forum have devised and continue to develop a set of protocols that provide a common environment for the development of advanced telephony services and Internet access for the wireless market. which aimed at increasing the data rate to 115 kbps. the Internet has proved highly successful in reaching the homes of millions worldwide. As mentioned earlier. If the WAP protocols were to be as successful as transmission control protocol (TCP)/Internet protocol (IP). With over 75 percent of the world's key handset manufacturers already involved in the WAP Forum and announcing the impending release of WAP–compatible handsets. processing power. With the advent of general packet radio services (GPRS). However. power supplies display size. As a fixed-line technology.

The services available to users will be wide-ranging in nature. multithreaded operating system from Microsoft designed for including or embedding mobile and other spaceconstrained devices. WAP in the Competitive Environment Competition for WAP protocols could come from a number of sources: subscriber identity module (SIM) toolkit—The use of SIMs or smart cards in wireless devices is already widespread and used in some of the service sectors. and travel are only some of the areas in which WAP will provide services for mobile users. and the simplicity of the WML / WMLS languages with which the applications will be written. with the ability for users to interact with services via both voice and data interfaces. the WAP application strategy involves taking existing services that are common within a fixed-line environment and tailoring them to be purposeful and user-friendly in a wireless environment. as a result of the open specifications of WAP. NEPs will be able to build cellular phones that can download extra features and functions over the Internet. Web browsing as experienced by the desktop user. The advantages that WAP can offer over these other methods are the following: open standard. value-added services.
