Arris International has announced support for the RDK software stack across its next-generation EPON gateways.
RDK support offers a number of benefits including unified back-office system for managing both fibre and DOCSIS architectures, simplified network provisioning, carrier-grade management features, and full integration with the Arris HomeAssure solution.
“RDK is important to Arris, as we continue providing best-in-class software options for our global customer base. Arris has been a pioneer in RDK from the beginning—and today, we’re proud to extend that leadership by supporting RDK in EPON gateways,” said Larry Robinson, President, CPE, Arris.
“This decision aligns with our vision to provide a unified operations and management platform to our service provider customers who are delivering the future of Gigabit and Wi-Fi.”
“Arris’s support of RDK for its global EPON gateways is a testament to the continuous innovation of ARRIS and also demonstrates the versatility of the RDK open-source software,” added Steve Heeb, President and General Manager of RDK Management, LLC.
“As service providers around the globe look to deploy fibre gateways, RDK provides a common method to manage core functionality, including home networking, IoT interfaces, device management, real time diagnostics, and more.”
Arris is now building RDK support into the EPON version of its NVG578 PON gateway platform.
