Arris has introduced what it calls the first retail voice gateway equipped with RDK-B technology, a version of the Reference Design Kit (RDK) tailored for broadband devices, to be approved for use on Comcast’s network.
Arris said the RDK-B capability provides a common way to manage functions such as home networking interfaces, including WiFi, device management, and diagnostics.
The Reference Design Kit, a preintegrated software platform, is also used in certain video set-tops and gateways (RDK-V). The project is being managed by Comcast, Liberty Global and Charter Communications (via its acquisition of Time Warner Cable).
