Sharepoint How to do get request to external web service

How can I make get request from Sharepoint object model to external web service? I tried did it with ajax request:

$.get("http:/servername/webservice_name", function(data, status) {
alert("Data: " + data[0] + "\nStatus: " + status);


But I have an error: Access denied.
My web service has response in JSON format.
I have read a lot of article, but there are no decisions. I read, that ajax forbidden in SharePoint for external web service. How can I make it without ajax?

In the SharePoint online it is work only for https web services. http from https web sites not allowed. Final code, which work with https:

    url: "https://services.odata.org/Northwind/Northwind.svc/Customers",
    type: "GET",
    headers: { "ACCEPT": "application/json;odata=verbose" },
    async: false,
    success: function (data) {
            alert("Results Count:"+data.d.results.length);
            alert("no data");
    error: function () {
        //alert("Failed to get details");
