Shared Wireless Access Protocol

Developed by the HomeRF Working Group, SWAP is a specification for wireless voice and data networking in the home.

 

SWAP works together with the PSTN network and the Internet through existing cordless telephone and wireless LAN technologies. It supports TDMA for interactive data transfer and CSMA/CA for high-speed packet transfer.

 

SWAP operates in the 2400 MHz band at 50 hops per second. Data travels at a rate between 1 Mbps and 2 Mbps.

 

On a SWAP network via cordless handheld devices, users will be able to voice activate home electronic systems; access the Internet from anywhere in the home, and forward fax, voice and e-mail messages.
