I need to find a company that can develop a waiting room for our website. It must be able to hold the users before creating the API calls. Any one have any experience with waiting rooms and what was your solution.

How about posting some instructions to read, add a timer for let's say 10 seconds, on zero the OK button to proceed to the api calls is enabled.

So all you need is some javascript code.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

The program that handles the API calls can only handle 200 concurrent connections. I need to limit those calls to 150 and place the other thousands of people in a waiting room till the connections are released

Same idea, you dont have to redirect them to an error page, you can redirect them to a waiting page as the number of current connections exceeded.

this watting room is a active page for each individual request and is a separate thread.

The waiting idea is quite simple, the page is load as user has been redirected (so you have an interface: Server is busy ...), as soon as the page is load, a javascript function will force a postback or keep reconnecting from background, untill the connection releases. When user is allow to process, he is redirected to normal page again

Hope this helps
