Using Comet Notifications

When a Vocera Collaboration Suite client on the iOS or Android operating system is operating within the organization's Wi-Fi network, and a message needs to be sent from the VMP Server to the device, the server uses Comet to send a content-less notification to the device.

When the device receives the notification, it uses its normal connection to the VMP Server to retrieve the message. This connection is secure if it has been configured to use SSL.

In the VMP Enterprise Manager, you can configure the VMP Server to force the use of SSL when communicating with client applications. See Enforcing SSL on the VMP Server for more details.
