The technology is sometimes called "VoWi-Fi" or "Wi-Fi VoIP" because it uses the IEEE 802.11 set of specifications (informally known as "Wi-Fi") for transporting data over wireless local area networks and the Internet. Essentially, VoWLAN is VoIP delivered through wireless technology.

  • W

    W-CDMA (Wideband Code-Division Multiple Access)

    Also see CDMA, CDMA One, and CDMA2000. W-CDMA (Wideband Code-Division Multiple Access), an ITU standard derived from Code-Division Multiple Access (CDMA), is officially known as IMT-2000 direct spread.

  • WAP (Wireless Application Protocol)

    WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) is a specification for a set of communication protocols to standardize the way that wireless devices, such as cellular telephones and radio transceivers, can be used for Internet access.
