What does this mean for you?
Extremely fast device detection
Our patented algorithm allows for extremely high speeds afforded by a PATRICIA Trie, with the flexibility
to accommodate the reality that you cannot have prior knowledge of all devices on the market.
Stable, robust APIs
Customers using DeviceAtlas can rest assure that our API is highly extensible and will never interfere
with existing deployments.
Highly optimized data file footprint
Our API can operate in as little as 15MB of RAM with our data loaded. Even with this tiny footprint,
sub-microsecond lookups are achievable on modest hardware.
Accuracy is central to DeviceAtlas IP. Our algorithms maximize accuracy by quantifying data points
from multiple sources. Our aggregated database has wide coverage of different territories.
Globally Deployed and Trusted
DeviceAtlas has been built on the design of efficient algorithms, relentlessly honed over time for high performance. This is why DeviceAtlas delivers the fastest lookups while preserving a very small memory footprint and data file. DeviceAtlas delivers speed, accuracy and efficiency—no compromises.
Whether you are running an advertising platform with sub-millisecond device identification requirements, a high-traffic website, or an analytics platform processing trillions of log files, DeviceAtlas technology provides the fastest, most accurate device intelligence.Our customers
