Today I have created a server application on Python Tornado which can forward TCP Packets directly to HTTP request queue without any intermediate caching.

Our remote IOT devices (microcontrollers with sensors attached) send sensor reading over TCP Socket to our server and all the connected web applications can show the data instantly using long polling and the above mentioned technique.

    Some mobile browsers and old browsers, specially IE, don't support websockets. And the remote microcontrollers are old. Those only use TCP sockrt, nothing else.
