Narrowband Sockets (NBS) is an industry specification initially developed by Intel Corporation and Nokia. Using the functions defined in this specification, software developers will be able to create wireless messaging applications for mobile PC and advanced digital cellular phone users using familiar Internet programming interfaces. The NBS specification extends the reach of the Internet to create "always-connected" mobile clients.
Narrowband Sockets defines an efficient transport service over wireless messaging networks. NBS is also network independent, so applications can use NBS to send and receive data via short messages over any network. The NBS specification provides a Windows* WinSock 2 programming interface which is well known to developers.

WinSock 2 is fully compatible with the immensely popular WinSock 1.1 interface while expanding to support virtually all transport protocols (including IPX/SPX, OSI, native ATM, and now NBS) and offering quality of service capabilities for multimedia communications.
