Technicolor Connected Home has announced the deployment of over 20 million RDK broadband gateways for network service providers (NSPs) around the world.
Technicolor made its first commitment to the RDK-B software in 2016. It has subsequently seen increasing demand from the NSPs.
“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,” said Ashwani Saigal, Vice President of Broadband at Technicolor Connected Home.
The open source software platform standardises core functions used in broadband, video, and IoT connected devices.
“Technicolor Connected Home is a global leader at accelerating RDK adoption, particularly evidenced by their broadband RDK deployments with service providers globally,” said Jason Briggs, President and General Manager of RDK. “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.”
The rapid uptake of RDK-B by telcos, satellite service providers and cable operators has made it possible for the sector to move from proprietary single function customer premises equipment (CPE) to open platforms that enable a wide-array of new services to be introduced into the market.
