RDK Software platform surpasses 100m deployments
September 7, 2022
RDK Management has announced details about the continued adoption of the RDK open source software platform used to power customer-premises equipment (CPE) from broadband and video service providers worldwide.
“Surpassing 100 million RDK device deployments is a testament to the central role RDK now plays at cable, telco, and satellite providers around the globe,” said Jason Briggs, President and General Manager of RDK. “RDK has evolved into a versatile software platform that provides operators with consistency and efficiencies across CPE manufacturers, chipset suppliers, and their diverse footprints of transport networks. Members of the community are also exploring new ways to extend the use of RDK into other areas, such as connected TVs, 5G fixed wireless gateways, and more. It’s certainly an exciting time for RDK, and our team is fully committed to providing the support and tools our community needs to achieve their technical and business objectives.”
The number of RDK devices deployed globally rose to 100 million, up from 80 million last year. RDK is currently deployed across dozens of leading service providers throughout Europe, North America, Latin America, and Asia. Service providers with public RDK deployments include: Atlantic Broadband, BCN, Claro, Comcast, Cox, Deutsche Telekom, J:COM, KabelPlus, Liberty Global, Mediacom, Megacable Melita, NOS, Nuuday, Rogers, SFR (part of Altice Europe), Shaw, Sky, Stofa, Telcom Argentina, Toya, Vectra, Vidéotron, Vodafone, VOO, VTR, WOW, Ziggo, and others.
RDK also shared that there are more than 600 technology companies within the RDK community, up from about 500 last year. These companies span leading SoC companies, CE manufacturers, software developers, system integrators, and service providers. Recent additions to the RTAB include Beegol, Consult Red, DTVKit, Sagemcom, and Tata Elxsi.
RDK is an open source software platform that standardizes core functions used in video, broadband, and IoT connected devices. By standardizing these functions, service providers can develop and deploy applications and services, across various hardware platforms. A key to RDK’s growing adoption is that device provisioning, data diagnostics, reporting, and telemetry are consistent across all RDK software profiles, enabling service providers to manage video, broadband and cameras in a uniform way.
