APP Providers

New application providers can leverage the itaas RDK and HTML5 development expertise to rapidly develop applications and prototype demos. Application developers are then free to focus their own resources on product definition and business development.


The RDK Hardware Development Platform (or HDP) is the approved development environment for RDK licensees. It is a simple, low-cost design that eliminates the need for a headend and the requirement to provision the box. With the HDP, developers can create new software and test applications without the need for extensive hardware. This solution was created to help speed the development and testing process, but is also a great way to show new solutions to customers in remote locations or at trade shows.​

RDK Management is an open source consortium that manages the Reference Design Kit (RDK).
