ARRIS (NASDAQ:ARRS) announced support for the RDK software stack across its next generation of EPON gateways. RDK support is intended to allow a unified back-office system for managing both fiber and DOCSIS architectures, simplified network provisioning, carrier-grade management features, and 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 WiFi."

"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. "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 recently completed an RDK EPON gateway deployment with a U.S. operator, and has made RDK deployments on multiple DOCSIS 3.0/3.1 gateways.

ARRIS is now building RDK support into the EPON version of its NVG578 PON gateway platform. The gateway offers a pathway to gigabit broadband and whole-home WiFi (dual-/tri-band 802.11ac and 802.11ax), with optional IoT support. The gateways are being highlighted at ANGA COM in Cologne, Germany, this week.
