Feedback on ASP.NET Web API

Duplex/Callback functionality

I'm looking for a way to do a client callback/duplex function from a IIS hosted Web API w/a Windows PC .NET client. Right now I'm considering a in-process Web API hosted from w/in the client to receive messages.

What other approaches can I look at for achieving this? While old school WCF has this functionality, this API is the future. Instead of polling, what type of mechanism could allow for a push type notification from the web api on iis to a .net windows client?
