VANTIVA embeds RDK-B in a wide range of devices

Network service providers understand that effective strategies for ultra-broadband and gigabit services hinge not just on technical performance, but on the quality of the end user experience. This is where standards and interoperable technologies play an important role. RDK-B standardizes functionalities for broadband devices, enabling cable operators to efficiently deploy different services to a large customer base by making it possible to more easily manage different functions – including Wi-Fi and Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) and Internet of Things (IoT) controllers.

Today, all of VANTIVA’s DOCSIS gateways with Wi-Fi capabilities ship with RDK-B as the default software stack. Service providers automatically gain the technical benefits of RDK-B and can then focus their efforts on the new services that drive their businesses.
