Aiming to address the needs of the increasing number of broadband service providers supporting multiple access network technologies such as DOCSIS and PON, Altice Labs has unveiled a portfolio of next-generation broadband gateways, powered by RDK software.

RDK Logo 5June2019The RDK open source software platform for the connected home standardises core functions used in broadband, video and IoT connected devices. It enables service providers to manage their devices, control their business models and customise their apps, UIs and data analytics to improve the customer experience and enhance business results. For video, RDK provides a common method to manage video tuning conditional access, DRM and stream management among other features.

Altice Labs’ RDK-powered gateways include a GPON gateway with Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax); a DOCIS 3.1 gateway with Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax); and a DOCSIS 3.0 gateway with Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac). Altice Labs also plans to offer an XGS-PON gateway with Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) in the coming months. Devices within the portfolio are intended to see use by service providers in Europe and USA.

“Altice Labs is proud to join the RDK community by offering a suite of new RDK-based gateways to meet the needs of our parent company and other leading operators around the globe,” commented Alcino Lavrador, general manager of Altice Labs. “The RDK GPON gateway has already been deployed with SFR in France, and we look forward to additional deployments soon. Our suite of Altice Labs’ gateways with RDK can help improve operator efficiency across access technologies and accelerate operator innovation by using a common approach for Wi-Fi management, device diagnostics and data analytics.”

“Altice Labs is renowned for developing world-class broadband solutions, and we’re honoured to have them in the RDK community,” added Steve Heeb, president and general manager of RDK. “Altice Labs should be commended for its ability to develop RDK solutions across multiple access network technologies, and for its use in the world’s first GPON deployment with RDK. These exciting broadband products are a clear testament to Altice Labs’ technological leadership and commitment to RDK.”
