CalConnect establishes technical committee to develop PUSH for CalDAV (and CardDAV)

TC PUSH was formed to extend CalDAV and CardDAV with standardized support for PUSH notifications.

At present CalDAV and CardDAV clients have to poll the server at regular intervals to check for changes. To provide a close to “real time” user experience and present updates and notifications almost immediately to the user, a client has to poll at a high frequencies, possibly at the expense of higher consumption of resources like bandwidth and traffic, processing time and battery power.
