Demonstrations of Akamai Situational Performance Technology
Throughout Velocity 2013, Akamai will host live demonstrations showcasing a
variety of technologies that can help organizations better achieve situational
performance. Attendees can see firsthand how features such as Real User
Monitoring, mobile optimization and new Front‑end Optimizations in the latest
version of Aqua Ion can improve the Web experience for users independent of
device or network.
Further, the company will also be showcasing updates to two important tools
developers can use to better understand how mobile delivery and browser market
share may impact Web design and optimization choices.
Akamai Mobitest is a free tool created to raise awareness about mobile web
performance and its potential impact on the end user. Developers can enter a
URL and then choose a device/location option. The desired page is loaded on a
real mobile device and rich detail about how long it took to load – including
waterfall charts and video recording of the page load – are provided. New
devices and locations on which to test pages will be debuted at Velocity 2013.
For Akamai IO, a data visualization tool that provides browser usage trends
across a number of leading Web sites, a variety of powerful new filtering and
grouping functionality has been added, along with new geographical views of
the data. These updates allow the presentation of much richer data around
browser and device market share, including which device brands are popular in
which regions, what browsers are used on the Android platform, and others.
Having this data readily available can help developers prioritize
