Responsive website by Cyber-Duck is 'future friendly' and backwards compatible; The Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA listed digital agency, Cyber-Duck have launched a 'device agnostic' website, optimised for any device with an Internet connection

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) London - Award winning digital agency, Cyber-Duck, today launched their 6th iteration of their website with a responsive web design (RWD). The website has been produced so layouts and content fluidly adapt to any screen on virtually any Internet enabled device.

The new website is a bold move by the digital agency, who controversially decided to scrap their own separate dedicated desktop, tablet and smartphone websites. The new website automatically recognises the screen size via media queries and adjusts the content and interfaces via multiple breakpoints. By creating an in-house custom HTML5/CSS grid system and testing the user experience (UX) on multiple devices and technologies, Cyber-Duck have managed to ensure accessibility and content parity for their users.

The web design degrades gracefully for Nokia Symbian feature phones, Kindle Whitepapers, and older Internet browsers whilst progressively enhancing for Apple Retina displays, high resolution tablets and 4K television sets. Features are enhanced depending on the capabilities of the device and hardware that the user is using. The new website also makes the most of device processing power by getting CSS to use the GPU as opposed to the CPU for animations.

To further enhance the loading time on mobile devices, the speed of the new website drastically improved by over 500%. The speed optimisation was achieved by removing the content management system (CMS) where possible and replacing it with a "dynamic route/ static template" system using the PHP framework Laravel.

Danny Bluestone, Cyber-Duck's Managing Director said: "On average we launch a brand new website every 18 months to 'look forward' into the future. This time round, we dreamt of a website that is truly future-friendly that works everywhere from older feature phones right up to the latest devices and high resolution displays. As an agency we need to be sensitive to paradigm shifts within the web development industry and how technology is evolving (based on the principles of Moore's Law). By following our ISO accredited user centred design (UCD) process, we managed to produce a stunning RWD that has future-friendliness at its heart." Cyber-Duck ensured that all members of staff and key clients input was considered and included throughout the production. The team have written an article about the exact reasons for the redesign and how they went about creating their new responsive website design here.

The website launch coincides with Cyber-Duck officially gaining an ISO9001:2008 certification for its quality management system, as the agency continues in its quest to be the leading independent digital agency in the UK.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
