NowWAP Gateway

The NowWAP Gateway (or Proxy) is a powerful WAP Gateway for Browsing and Multimedia Messaging.

NowWAP is a WAP Gateway that is designed to meet the needs of WAP 2 and Multimedia applications, especially MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) and Java downloads.

Key Features:

  • Supports WAP 2 clients using either Wireless Profiled HTTP/TCP (W-HTTP and W-TCP), or the WSP protocol stack.
  • Supports segmentation and re-assembly (SAR) to provide support for larger object delivery to MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) clients.
  • Acts as an HTTP proxy to provide speed enhancements for web browsing via a PC over a GPRS modem or other wireless connection.
  • Provides full WAP gateway support for WAP v1.1, v1.2, v1.2.1, v1.3 and v2 WAP clients.
  • Interfaces with Radius Accounting for automatic user identification by MSISDN.
  • The NowWAP Proxy is available in both standard and secure (WTLS) versions.
  • To implement WAP Push and MMS services in conjunction with the NowWAP Proxy, we recommend the use of the Now SMS & MMS Gateway. The Now SMS & MMS Gateway includes a WAP Push Proxy Gateway (PPG) and an Multimedia Messaging Service Centre (MMSC) which compliments the services provided by the NowWAP Proxy.
