Technicolor passes RDK milestone

Technicolor Connected Home has deployed over 20 million RDK broadband gateways for service providers globally.

Technicolor made an early commitment to provide RDK-B software to broadband network service providers in 2016 and the company says it has seen rising demand every year since.

RDK is an open-source software platform that standardizes core functions used in video, broadband, and IoT connected devices. For broadband, RDK software provides common support for routing, Wi-Fi, device management, diagnostics, DNS, and IoT interfaces, such as Bluetooth, Thread and Zigbee.

“Technicolor Connected Home has worked closely with the RDK community since its formation and has collaborated on developing a software stack that enables NSPs to not only provide subscribers with optimal broadband performance, but also integrate new innovations and applications in a cost-effective manner.

“RDK-B devices integrated with services such as far-field voice controls, privacy and security greatly contribute to the reduction of customer churn for NSPs. RDK has emerged as a WAN agnostic platform that reduces the cost associated with building separate software stacks for different access technologies and devices. This reduces the overall operational maintenance associated with managing multiple WAN networks,” said Ashwani Saigal, Vice President of Broadband at Technicolor Connected Home.

“Technicolor Connected Home is a global leader at accelerating RDK adoption, particularly evidenced by their broadband RDK deployments with service providers globally. The company shares our commitment to providing service providers with software that delivers maximum versatility and transparency and enables service providers to retain full control over device telemetry and the consumer-facing experience. Technicolor Connected Home solutions also make it possible for operators who have a mix of broadband access technologies within their footprints to use RDK as a standardized software platform across gateways and networks. We are so pleased to have Technicolor continuing to make such substantial contributions to the RDK community,” said Jason Briggs, President and General Manager of RDK. “
