RDK is making considerable progress in Europe and according to the organisation’s Steve Heeb as many as half of those are based in Europe.
In a Broadband TV News interview on the sidelines of Angacom, Heeb explained there were “multiple operators at multiple stages”, meaning that while some projects were on the testbench, others were ready to officially adopt the series of protocols and open source materials.
Currently, the most significant member of the RDK club in Europe is Liberty Global, which holds interests across the continent.
“The biggest decision is when you bring it in because any software platform is long term planning,” said Heeb. “Europe is an extremely important market and I’ll meet with the operators the technology companies. It’s different because of DVB and its intitacrcies.
RDK has some 275 licensees including 25 operators.
