Deutsche Telekom will use RDK as its default broadband software across Europe, covering GPON, DOCSIS, and DSL gateways.
RDK’s open source software has already been deployed on more than 80 million devices worldwide. It standardises core functions used in broadband, video, and IoT connected devices.
“RDK provides us with a common way to control and manage our broadband device capabilities, telemetry, analytics, and apps across our EU footprint, enabling us to create a harmonized customer experience across different devices” said Pedro Bandeira, Vice President of Product and New Business at Deutsche Telekom. ‘We are particularly excited about the ability to leverage common RDK data analytics in predictive and proactive ways that will enable us to create differentiated and enhanced customer experiences.”
RDK enables service providers to simplify integration efforts and reduce the cost and complexity of managing separate software stacks across chipsets and CPE.
“Deutsche Telekom is one of the world’s foremost technological leaders and innovators, and we’re proud to have them engage with the RDK” said Jason Briggs, President and General Manager of RDK. “We share a common vision about bringing transparency and standardization to the core technical functions of CPE, enabling service providers to focus their valuable time on customer-facing applications and services. We’re confident that Deutsche Telekom’s commitment and leadership will be of tremendous value to the entire RDK community.”
The RDK community includes over 500 companies including: CPE manufacturers, SoC vendors, software developers, system integrators, and service providers.
