A comprehensive course in providing broad knowledge on Bluetooth and WAP wireless standards, technologies, protocols and applications. Bluetooth is a wireless technology for small devices such as PDAs, cell phones and computers to communicate seamlessly without cables or wires. The goal of WAP is to bring Internet content and advanced services to wireless handsets and other wireless terminals and to create a global wireless protocol specification to work across differing wireless network technologies. WML serves as the markup language for browser display on wireless devices This unique class is to baseline the current Bluetooth and WAP/WML standard effort and to define the parameters of the technical wireless communications environment. The course explains the contributing technologies of the Bluetooth and WAP/WML in detail, outlining new directions and products already emerging and surveying the imminent technologies that create a brand of new telecommunications environment. Students will acquire hand-on experience in writing WAP/WML software applications as a term project.
