PORTSMOUTH, N.H., Oct. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — QA Cafe, a leading provider of IP test solutions and capture analysis tools for broadband access, home networks, consumer electronics, and service providers, today announced that it has joined the RDK community. Its CDRouter test solution for broadband and Wi-Fi routers and gateways will aid the project with repeatable, automated testing of the RDK-B reference code implementations.

“We’re excited to be a part of the RDK project,” said Timothy Winters, Chief Technology Officer at QA Cafe. “Open-source software, combined with testing of vendor implementations, creates a community for successful interoperable technologies. Helping the RDK team and developers of RDK-B based solutions through automated testing is core to our mission of helping the industry build better networks for subscribers overall.”

QA Cafe’s CDRouter is a comprehensive and powerful test automation solution focused on feature, security, and performance testing for broadband and enterprise edge gateways, Wi-Fi and mesh systems, and other CPE.  As the industry standard for testing complex networking devices, it is used by hundreds of networking companies worldwide, from chipsets to OEMs to service providers.

The RDK community comprises more than 430 companies including CPE manufacturers, SoC vendors, software developers, system integrators, and service providers. Globally, the number of RDK devices deployed is now more than 60 million, and dozens of service providers across North America, Europe, Latin America, and Asia are in various stages of evaluation, testing, trials, or deployment.
