Frame Relay Frame relay is a telecommunication service designed for cost-efficient data transmission for intermittent traffic between local area networks (LANs) and between end-points in a wide area network (WAN). It is based on the older X.25 packet-switching technology which was designed for transmitting analogue data such as voice conversations. Unlike X.25 which was designed for analogue signals, frame relay is a fast packet technology, which means that the protocol does not attempt to correct errors. When an error is detected in a frame, it is simply "dropped" (thrown away). The end points are responsible for detecting and retransmitting dropped frames. (However, the incidence of error in digital networks is extraordinarily small relative to analogue networks.)
Fax Transmission Transmitting fax over the mobile phone network using your mobile handset. Your mobile phone could be used as a modem when connected to your notebook or desktop computer, and even PDAs to transmit such data.

IEEE IEEE 1394, High Performance Serial Bus, is an electronics standard for connecting devices such as mobile phones to your personal computer. IEEE 1394 provides a single plug-and-socket connection on which up to 63 devices can be attached with data transfer speeds up to 400 Mbps (megabits per second).

ICNIRP ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection) is an independent scientific organisation responsible for providing guidance and advice on the health hazards of non-ionizing radiation exposure. ICNIRP develops international guidelines on limits of exposure to non-ionizing radiations which are independent and science based. It provides science based guidance and recommendations on protection from non-ionizing radiation exposure and establishes principles of non-ionizing radiation protection for formulating international and national protection programmes. It is the recognised non-governmental organisation in non-ionizing radiation for the World Health Organisation, the International Labour Organisation and the Commission of the European Union.
Java application Application such as utilities or games created using Java programming language, which could be used to install into a Java supported mobile handset, letting the users have their own choice of softwares to be used with their phone.

J2ME consists of programming specifications and a special virtual machine, the K Virtual Machine, which allows a J2ME-encoded program to run in the mobile device.
