Netbiter and ThingWorx: AlwaysOn WebSocket Used?

When the LC300-Series Netbiter is used to update data for a ThingWorx “remote thing”, does the Netbiter connect to ThingWorx via the ThingWorx “AlwaysOn” WebSocket?

From our documentation the netbiter uses the URL, port, cert, resource, Appkey, Name. This is most likely used for REST API requests but I don’t have any info on the specific connection it makes. We should be able to help further with this if you post over to
