ABSTRACT
<p><b>Abstract</b>—In this paper, an analytical model for studying the performance behaviors of wireless application protocol (WAP) over wireless links is proposed. A Rayleigh fading channel model is used to characterize the behaviors of wireless channel. Mathematical expressions that represent the performance of WAP as a function of the protocol and the channel parameters are derived. Computer simulation results are presented to validate the analytical results. It is shown that WAP performs better in a bursty error environment than in a random error environment. The goodput of WAP can be improved by increasing the WAP packet group size, but the significance of the improvement depends on the underlying channel condition.</p>
