I have been having a lot of fun writing proof-of-concept software for Avaya Cloud Office (ACO). In case you aren’t familiar with ACO, it’s Avaya’s version of the popular RingCentral UCaaS platform. In this instance, I wrote a service that sits between a web browser and ACO. The service, which runs on my Linux server, uses websockets to dynamically inform a web application of any SMS messages to and from my ACO telephone number. To see the code in action, check out my latest Cheapo-Cheapo Productions video. I think it’s pretty cool and hope you feel the same.
By the way, I wrote this for SMS text, but it can be extended to any data that needs to flow asynchronously from ACO to a web client.
