RDK Management has claimed more than 50 million devices powered by its RDK software have now been deployed by broadband service providers worldwide.
The stat was announced at ANGA COM in Cologne, where RDK Management said that the RDK community has also expanded to more than 400 companies – including CE manufacturers, SoC companies, software developers, system integrators, and service providers.
Companies that have publicly announced deployment plans for RDK-based services include Comcast, Cox, J:COM, Liberty Global, Melita, NOS, NOWO, Rogers, Shaw, Tele Columbus, Vidéotron, and Vodafone.
RDK Management said that dozens of service providers across North America, Europe, Latin America, and Asia are also in various stages of evaluation, testing, trials, or deployment.
“Service providers around the globe recognize that RDK gives them ultimate control over their software roadmaps and data within the connected home, across video, broadband and IoT connected devices,” said Steve Heeb, President and General Manager of RDK.
“On the broadband side, RDK has become the preferred software stack for broadband gateways from leading suppliers, and they are focused on providing RDK solutions across DOCSIS, DSL, and PON.
“For video, the RDK App Framework and RDK Video Accelerator make it easier to develop and manage apps in a consistent way across RDK video devices. And, notably, RDK also provides a common method for service providers to leverage device management and ‘big data’ to improve broadband and video performance.”
RDK is an open source software platform for the connected home that standardises core functions used in broadband, video, and IoT connected devices.
