WCF over radio network RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have been working on a product to simulate Instant Messenger between between organizations to transfer /view a specific kinda of files relating to these organizations. Initially, the design was discussed and we approved, implemented SSL/SQL membership Web Server application that Desktop clients use to transfer back and force the different messages and files. Now many clients have approached us in regards to using that product on their radio networks ( which recommends UDP based solutions). The structure as it is right now is not that suitable for radio networks because of the "chattiness" of the framework that we use over the radio networks. We have been thinking about where to go from here some of the options that we are considering are:


    1- Using NetTcp binding instead ( Not sure it will be of a better performance in regards to network traffic)   

    2- Writing Custom UDP binding instead ( learning curve)

    3 - Using Remoting or straight  row socket  communication ( Need to write from the bottom up)



    Any advice is much appreciated!

  • Greetings,

    You need to look other technologies from Microsoft that matches your specific requirement given from the client.


    WCF is designed for SOA architecture  or a disturbed architecture in mind.


    Contact directly Microsoft architects and ask for possible technology that will help you meet your requirement. Ask people and get other software professionals suggestions and  opinions. It will help to understand things in wider perspective.  Make thorough feasbility study of any new technology and make sure that requirements are met  by using the technology. When you address the clients , you need to have a working model so that  the customers can convinced.


    All the best.

    Take Care
