You don't have to use WCF, you can develop your own methods of sending data using sockets, http, ftp, etc.

As Momerath said, you can use any pre-existing method of sending data over the wire. Just, WCF makes things a lot easier in terms of manipulation and you don't have to worry about network management.

You should investigate WCF at the least, but if you do, have a look at the WCF Web API. It might be easier for you to implement =)
