Kaazing WebSocket Gateway


The Kaazing WebSocket Gateway is the world's first and only enterprise solution for full-duplex, high-performance communication over the Web built with the HTML5 WebSocket standard at its foundation.

HTML5 WebSocket was designed as a transport layer - an "empty pipe" - on which application-level protocols can be implemented. Kaazing WebSocket Gateway delivers the full promise of WebSocket by adding that all-important protocol-level support, along with a suite of robust enterprise-class capabilities that include:
