Unfortunately APNS with CalendarServer is only supported when using Server.app, and only with Apple clients. This is because the APNS servers will only send pushes to Apple clients (via platform security controls). Also note that the Calendar.app client will only accept pushes associated with an APNS cert that contains a topicID in a (restricted) Apple namespace that is not available to third parties that obtain APNS server certs via the certificate portal website. Server.app is entitled to request certs in this restricted namespace, authenticated with iCloud credentials.

Getting APNS to work for Apple clients and servers is simple: just turn it on in the Server.app GUI, and clients should notice and switch to APNS instead of polling.
