100M milestone for RDK

RDK Management has announced a major milestone for its open source software, revealing that the RDK software platform has passed 100 million device deployments across major cable, telco, and satellite service providers.

This is up from 80 million RDK devices deployed globally last year, with dozens of leading service providers across Europe, North America, Latin America, and Asia.

On the video side, RDK powers set-top boxes from a variety of manufacturers and for broadband, the software provides common support across DOCSIS, DSL, and GPON gateways for routing, Wi-Fi, device management, diagnostics, DNS, and IoT interfaces, such as Bluetooth, Thread and Zigbee.

RDK software is also available for IP-connected cameras, delivering common methods to support live video feeds, continuous video recording, motion detection, and watermarking. Moreover, members of the community are exploring new ways to extend the use of RDK into other areas, such as connected TVs, 5G fixed wireless gateways, and more.

The consortium 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.

“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.”

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, Videotron, Vodafone, VOO, VTR, WOW, Ziggo, and others.

Over the past year, RDK also established a RDK Technical Advisory Board (RTAB) for experienced RDK advocates and contributors to drive innovation and technical roadmap development for the RDK community. Recent additions to the RTAB include Beegol, Consult Red, DTVKit, Sagemcom, and Tata Elxsi.
