  • Operational Flexibility and Reliability

    Achieve operational flexibility and reliability by using a Dockerized version of WURFL for your device detection operations. Users can simplify deployment and maintenance while achieving the accuracy and performance for which WURFL is known. Whether used for mobile optimization, advertising, or analytics use cases, WURFL Microservice for Docker device detection provides an enterprise’s devops team a reliable container that they can integrate into their larger architecture.

  • Platforms and Client API Libraries Supported

    After installing WURFL Microservice, developers can integrate client API libraries for Java, PHP, .NET (C#), Node.js, or Golang.

    The client API supplies the HTTP request (and more specifically the user agent) to the the microservice and returns the results of the WURFL device capabilities. Developers can quickly integrate WURFL into their larger microservice application architecture. The client API leverages its local cache to provide high performance from the overall WURFL Microservice architecture.

  • Device Coverage

    ScientiaMobile is constantly updating and expanding its Device Description Repository (DDR) to ensure accurate coverage of the newest devices, including long-tail Indian and Chinese devices. WURFL DDR covers 57,000 device profiles, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, smart TVs, and game consoles. As the DDR grows, detection performance stays high through use of caching and efficient database architecture.

    Any WURFL user who would like to add new devices permanently to WURFL can submit a request by emailing wurfldb@scientiamobile.com. Read more about how to do it here.

  • Device Capabilities

    ScientiaMobile offers a wide selection of WURFL capabilities from which commercially-licensed users can choose. These include virtual capabilities that combine the logic of several core capabilities. For example, “form_factor” will identify the device as “desktop”, “smartphone”, “tablet”, or several other classifications of devices. This saves developers effort needed to create their own logic to address common business questions. Developers can use these capabilities to provide more fine-grained optimization, control, and to detect device analytics.

    Likewise, ScientiaMobile’s premium WURFL capabilities can provide valuable insights into the economic profiles of enterprise’s website visitors. For example, using ScientiaMobile’s “MSRP,” clients can instantly learn the price of a visitor’s smartphone. With this insight into the affluence and willingness to purchase of individual users, eCommerce and advertisers can tailor offers and ads appropriately.
