Turn on / off Led using Arduino GPRS (internet) through webservices

Hi all, first of all thanks for opensource arduino board. In our final year project we are trying to control pins on board (on/off) using GPRS internet via web api. we have already hosted web api on cloud. Initially we successfully implemented PUT method. using that we can post the data to webservice. problem with GET method is not optimized solution for reading status of LED to on/off. we need to keep pinging GET method for current status of LED. can we use websockets with arduino gprs (internet). if it is possible please help us out. we’ll be very thankful to you. My mail id: uma5b3@gmail.com. pls let me know even If it is not possible or it has no optimized solution. Thank you very much.
