Why DeviceAtlas is both Fast AND Accurate

Speed should never come at the cost of accuracy. Accuracy is the sine qua non of device intelligence—if you can’t be sure about the intelligence, what is the point? The DeviceAtlas team believe that the choice between speed and accuracy is a false choice, and an unnecessary one. Our patented algorithm allows for the extremely high speeds afforded by a PATRICIA Trie, but with the flexibility to accommodate the reality that you cannot have prior knowledge of all devices on the market.

DeviceAtlas granted a new patent in the EU

In July 2017 the European Patent Office granted a patent to DeviceAtlas that was originally filed in 2008. This is quite a milestone for us—the application has survived objections from anonymous third parties and a much tougher patent regime than has applied in recent years. The patent in question, EP2245836 A2, is core to the operation of DeviceAtlas and is the reason why our solution is the fastest one out there, while preserving a very small memory footprint and data file. DeviceAtlas delivers speed, accuracy and efficiency—we don’t force you to choose. The same core algorithm is also protected by a US patent US9185182 B2, granted in 2015.

Web performance qualms make the news again

A recent article published on The Verge has yet again raised the question of web performance. In this article the author suggests that lack of browser diversity on iOS is one of the root causes of this mobile web performance issue. As many pundits have noted, ourselves included, there is deep irony in a notoriously bloated website such as The Verge making this complaint.
