A wireless application service provider (wireless ASP or WASP) is a type of application service provider that provisions application services to clients using wireless communication mediums. It enables end users and organizations to access applications and services remotely over a wireless Internet connection.
WASP primarily enables access to Internet-based applications and services from a wireless communications device or network. It works much like the standard ASP services but replaces wired connections with wireless mediums. The services provided by WASP are generally targeted for business users and include services such as access to CRM, ERP, email and other business applications. Users can access these services wirelessly using devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops.
