Why Fast Device Detection Matters

How 51Degrees Beats the Competition

Detecting mobile devices is important as websites designed with large desktop computer screens in mind rarely perform well on a mobile device. Detecting such devices allows you to present content in the right fashion for the viewing device which improves website performance for your visitors and leads to better user experience. You will find many device detection products on the market and they all claim to be the fastest and most accurate but they do not provide proof. 51Degrees device detection solution achieves 99.97 percent accuracy with 5 million detections per second on hardware that costs less than 1000 USD which makes our solution the fastest, most efficient and hence most environmentally friendly. 51Degrees device detection is easy to deploy in PHP, .NET, Java, Perl, Python and C.  In this article you will find test results for the 3 test hardware platforms we used as well as instruction on how to test our device detection solution in your environment in just 4 easy steps.

OTA13 - Jon Arne S: Mobile Web Performance

Author: Joe Davine

With Over the Air 2013 coming to a close last Saturday, I took some time to reflect on some of the more memorable talks given over the two-day event. Mobile and web performance guru Jon Arne Sæterås' presentation was particularly informative, and inspired me to write a quick summary for people that did not get the chance to see it live in person.

How to detect mobile devices with JavaServer Faces

Author: Data Team
The ability to detect mobile devices is an important part of website and web application design. Over the last year, requests to sites from mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones have risen to almost 20% of total web traffic. As well as this, dozens of new devices with varying screen sizes, input methods and capabilities are released onto the market all the time. Keeping up with this diversity is a nessecery but difficult task for any organisation maintaining a presence on the web. A good solution is to use a Device Description Repository to detect mobile devices through the browser header and its User Agent. 51Degrees.mobi's professionally maintained device data makes this process easy to implement and stays current through automatic updates.
