MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(www.kaazing.com), the pioneer and leader of HTML 5 WebSocket technology, announced today their new Kaazing WebSocket Gateway - JMS Edition 3.5 Platform. Through Kaazing’s revolutionary HTML 5 WebSocket architecture, the new platform improves iPhone battery life, app performance, data usage and offline participation so that apps, even when they’re not “on,” can push information to users more effectively than ever before. For iPhone app developers - from the Enterprise to Independents - Kaazing’s improvements mean 30-40% cost savings, with less hardware, less maintenance, and smaller data centers through Kaazing’s unified architecture.)--Kaazing (
“With the arrival of the iPhone 5 we wanted to make sure developers could make the user experience all it could be”
“With the arrival of the iPhone 5 we wanted to make sure developers could make the user experience all it could be,” said Jonas Jacobi Kaazing’s CEO and Co-Founder. “Right now most iPhone apps rely on using the earliest architecture of the Internet – HTTP, which wasn’t designed for the real-time responsiveness you need for apps dealing with air travel, finances, gaming, transportation or online collaboration. By providing an HTML 5 WebSocket platform, we enable the fastest, most reliable, mobile Living Web experience possible. Building a live, interactive, and real-time application using Kaazing’s HTML5 WebSocket technology requires less power and less data, meaning longer battery life in mobile devices, more responsive applications, and less impact on end users data plans.” In fact, applications using the Kaazing Gateway have been shown to be at least 50% more efficient than traditional web communications like HTTP for mobile app performance.
While reductions in bandwidth and other connectivity innovations dramatically extend battery life, The Kaazing Gateway also reduces latency, giving your apps a more responsive feel to end users. The full-duplex nature of Kaazing’s solution means true real-time mobile applications rather than the pseudo-real-time applications that eat up bandwidth and drain batteries.
Key Features of the new Kaazing WebSocket Gateway - JMS Edition 3.5 Platform include:
- iOS Client Library for writing native iPhone Applications
- Kaazing Certification for Cordova to write mobile hybrid applications
- APNS Integration to reach an audience even when they are not logged into a native application
- Guaranteed message delivery to ensure end users receive all messages intended for them
- Client-managed message flow control to ensure continued service through poor coverage areas
- Bandwidth capping to offer volume-tiered data delivery services
- Lower latency to provide better response time for end users
- Decreased bandwidth to minimize data usage
“We were looking for a technology that could support us in delivering huge amounts of monitoring data in a real-time, secure, mobile way,” said Richard Hutchings, Product Management Director at ITRS Group. “Our challenge is to get that data in a useful form, and for that to be really effective, we want it to be available through a browser and through mobile devices. Kaazing has the best technology—It’s right at the cutting edge of what’s available to meet our challenges. Kaazing is driving HTML 5 standards.”
