RDK offers service providers simplified gateway provisioning and management across fiber and DOCSIS® deployments

SUWANEE, Ga., June 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- ARRIS International plc (NASDAQ: ARRS) today announced its support for the RDK software stack across its next-generation EPON gateways. RDK support will offer several key benefits to ARRIS's global customers, including: a unified back-office system for managing both fiber 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," said Steve Heeb, President and General Manager of RDK Management, LLC. "As service providers around the globe look to deploy fiber gateways, RDK provides a common method to manage core functionality, including home networking, IoT interfaces, device management, real time diagnostics, and more."

ARRIS continues to lead the development and deployment of RDK gateways around the world. It recently completed the first RDK EPON gateway deployment in the US with a tier-one operator, and has made high-volume RDK deployments on multiple DOCSIS 3.0/3.1 gateways. Today's announcement further reinforces ARRIS's market-leading position and breadth of offering in broadband gateways.

ARRIS is now building RDK support into the EPON version of its flexible NVG578 PON gateway platform. This next-generation gateway offers a pathway to Gigabit broadband and whole-home Wi-Fi (dual-/tri-band 802.11ac and 802.11ax), with optional IoT support. ANGA COM attendees can learn more about ARRIS's plans for its new RDK gateways in booth #10, hall #7, 12-14 June 2018.
