The possibility of making the Internet accessible via mobile telephones has generated an important opportunity for electronic commerce. The WAP was intended to become a general standard for business. Nevertheless, some deficiencies hinder its mass acceptance in e-commerce applications. End-to-end security and speed of information delivery are absolutely necessary conditions. The authors present a solution, or at least a partial solution, for this situation. Wireless is typically a more constrained environment than the Internet. The theory of constraints and mobile agent technology can contribute to a strategic improvement of the overall performance of the system.
