Anny Way Mobile Data Gateway opens access to WAP 2.0 Standard

With the update of its Anny Way Mobile Data Gateways, MATERNA GmbH Information & Communications opens up access to WAP 2.0 for any interested parties. The access data can be downloaded easily from the address http://wap.annyway.com

This gateway is aimed primarily at manufacturers of mobile terminals, who can perform various interoperability tests via the Anny Way Mobile Data Gateway. The Gateway offers one great advantage: with only one network element, businesses and network operators can manage all services - regardless of whether they are based on WAP 1.1, WAP 1.2.1 or WAP 2.0. As the first WAP-Gateway of this Standards, the MATERNA development contains the new WP TCP protocol stack and WP HTTP in parallel to the WAP protocol that had been in use until now.

This makes the Anny Way Mobile Data Gateway a product that makes it possible, via simultaneous support of both stacks, for mobile phones already on the market and new developments to have standardised access to mobile internet services.
