Diffusion™ Push Notification Bridge
The Push Notification Bridge is a Diffusion client that
subscribes to topics on behalf of other Diffusion clients
and uses a push notification network to relay topic updates to the device where the
client application is located.
The Push Notification Bridge supports the following push notification networks:
- Apple Push Notification service (APNs)
- Google Cloud Messaging (GCM)
For more information about how the Push Notification Bridge works, see Push Notification Bridge.
Why use the Push Notification Bridge
Diffusion clients on Android™
or iOS® devices might not be running all the time to
conserve battery or to enable other processes to run. However, the user might still
want to receive realtime updates while the Diffusion
client is not running.
By using push notification networks, Diffusion can deliver
data to destinations on these devices at any time.
