RDK also shared that there are more than 600 technology companies within the RDK community, up from about 500 last year. These companies span leading SoC companies, CE manufacturers, software developers, system integrators, and service providers.

RDK is available at no cost to companies who want to access code, collaborate, develop, and submit software contributions back to the RDK community.

Over the past year, RDK also established a RDK Technical Advisory Board (RTAB) for experienced RDK advocates and contributors to drive innovation and technical roadmap development for the RDK community. Recent additions to the RTAB include Beegol, Consult Red, DTVKit, Sagemcom, and Tata Elxsi.

“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. 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.”
