Since 2005 the 51Degrees team have been creating mobile sites and providing consultancy services.
51Degrees was founded in April 2009 when we released an open source version of an ASP.NET module to detect mobile devices and redirect initial requests from these devices to a mobile friendly home page optimised for the small screen. This project, now titled 51Degrees Foundation, is freely available on Codeplex.
The Foundation is being continually updated to support new mobile devices and features requested by developers. Our goal is to maintain a fully open source server-side mobile device detection and redirection solution for Microsoft technologies.
During 2010 and 2011 we extended the underlying components of our services so that others can easily integrate them into their web sites. This product is called 51Degrees .NET Mobile Framework and is available for download and purchase on this web site.
