The number of RDK devices deployed globally has risen to 100 million, an increase of 20 million over the past year.
RDK, the open source software platform that standardises core functions used in video, broadband, and IoT connected devices, is deployed by dozens of operators globally, including Comcast, Cox, Deutsche Telekom, Liberty Global, Sky, Stofa, Vectra and Ziggo.
“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.”
There has also been an increase in the number of technology companies within the RDK community. There are more than 600 such companies, up from about 500 last year.
“Members of the community are also exploring new ways to extend the use of RDK into other areas, such as connected TVs, 5G fixed wireless gateways, and more. It’s certainly an exciting time for RDK, and our team is fully committed to providing the support and tools our community needs to achieve their technical and business objectives,” Briggs continued.
RDK is available at no cost to companies who want to access code, collaborate, develop, and submit software contributions back to the RDK community.
