Simplifying Mobile Content Delivery with Responsive Design

- July 25, 2012 - 0 Comments

As we mentioned recently, you can now get product information for all our Cisco products in a smartphone-friendly format via m.cisco.com.

We just took some of our product information to another level for mobile with the rollout of an innovative technique called “responsive web design” on selected pages.

Responsive web design lets us automatically format the display of information for your tablet or smartphone – but all while using the same content and code. This means we can support more devices in their optimal format, because we don’t have to follow the old practice of creating different sites or apps for different devices.

The pages self-render to fit the unique requirements of smartphone or tablet. For instance, on our pages for servers, specs and contact information are in a right column on tablets. But on smart phones – where there’s no room for a right column – this information is formatted below brief introductory content. There are other changes about layout and information delivery that are subtly tailored to the size of the screen.

You can actually play with this on your desktop browser if you go to those Unified Computing System pages for mobile and scrunch your browser to a narrow width befitting a smartphone footprint. It’s kind of fun to play with!  Try it: m.cisco.com/products/ucs

Have a look at the UCS product pages on your smartphone or tablet and let us know what you think.

Enjoy!
