51Degrees: More Than Three Times Faster!
51Degrees compares performance of our enhanced algorithm on three different commodity hardware platforms.
51Degrees is regularly evaluated against competitors DeviceAtlas and WURFL from ScientiaMobile for performance, accuracy and memory consumption. This blog post builds on the previous performance blog from 2016 with the same commodity hardware; 1) a Raspberry Pi, 2) a low-end desktop PC and 3) a high-end multi CPU server, but using an all new algorithm.

How to Use the New Hash Trie algorithm in Java
51Degrees explains how to call the C Hash Trie API within Java.
This article shows how the new, faster, Hash Trie algorithm can be used in a Java environment. This blog will go through the steps required to create an illustrative example of how to call the C Hash Trie API within Java. Before starting, you will need to get hold of the new Hash Trie source which is available on GitHub.
