RDK continues global adoption

The INTX expo has highlighted the growing adoption of software compatible with the Reference Design Kit (RDK) common framework for powering customer-premises equipment (CPE).

RDK M 18 May 2016The framework encompasses products from TV and Internet service providers including set-top boxes (STBs), gateways and converged devices. Its key developer, RDK Management — a joint venture between Comcast, Time Warner Cable, and Liberty Global — has announced at the leading US technology show that more than 15 million devices are now running the RDK deployed by worldwide operators.

Since the 2015 edition of INTX Show, the number of companies licensing the RDK has increased by more than 50 new companies and now stands at over 275. The number of RDK device deployments has tripled since last year’s show, from five million to more than 15 million devices - a figure expected to grow throughout 2016. More than 25 total cable, satellite and telco providers in North America, Europe, Latin America and Asia form the RDK community. The framework is currently deployed as part of leading TV service offerings from pay-TV operators such as Liberty Global, Cox Communications and Comcast.

“2016 is going to be a great year for the RDK community,” commented RDK Management president and general manager Steve Heeb. “On the video front, more operators across North America and Europe are developing and deploying products using an RDK-based software solution for STB’s, RDK-V (video). On the broadband front, we have recently made a new RDK software solution available for broadband gateways called RDK-B (broadband), which is in use by leading SoC and CPE suppliers, and making its way onto software roadmaps of operators around the globe.”

The new RDK-B software solution is designed to serve as the underlying software on broadband devices going forward, providing common methods to manage functions such as home-networking interfaces. These include Wi-Fi and Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA), wide area networking, local area networking, device management and diagnostics, smart home/IoT (Bluetooth, Thread, Zigbee) and video service (multicast video).
