Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

A wireless access point (WAP) is a hardware device or configured node on a local area network (LAN) that allows wireless capable devices and wired networks to connect through a wireless standard, including Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. WAPs feature radio transmitters and antennae, which facilitate connectivity between devices and the Internet or a network.

    Assuming this is your home work. Have you read your study materials? Have you ever asked your faculty regarding this question? Network access point is a traffic exchange point in the routing hierarchy of the Internet. Or through this technic, Internet service provider (ISP) drops down its lines and establishes a peering arrangement to provide Internet connectivity to customers.

    Yes, it is here, a good book which is based on NAP, that can help you,

    'NAP network access point: Lite Edition', by Gerard Blokdyk. You read this book and hopefully it helps you to understand your question.
