Open Source WAP and SMS Gateway version 0.2
The WapIT Open Source WAP and SMS gateway works as both an SMS gateway, for implementing keyword based services via GSM text messages, and a WAP gateway, via UDP. The SMS part is fairly mature, the WAP part is very early in its development. In this release, the GET request for WML pages via HTTP works, and the phone receives a compiled WML page. This is enough for serving simple, static WML pages. WMLScript and other request types are not supported. Only the data call bearer (UDP) is supported, not SMS.
See http://www.wapgateway.org for details and source code. (Debian and Red Hat packages to be made for later releases.)
WAP is short for Wireless Application Protocol, and is a much hyped way of making applications for mobile phones. GSM is the mobile phone standard for most of Europe and parts of the rest of the world, including USA.
