      In top of the eco-system we have wide range of application which requires wireless network access. This may be a cloud based UI application, a diagnostics webpage or a console application such as test automation kit which will be required to verify readiness of a new RDK box with respect to different component features. This can be a HTML based webpage or a native console application requesting Wi-Fi functionalities.


  • In the above picture, the data will be received by a RDK Broadband device which will be our entry point to the home network. This will act as a video gateway and , an internet router alsorouter as well as can be a home DVR also. The network connectivity from RDK broadband device to IP headend will be through a high speed network such as fiber optics, etc.
  • From the RDK broadband device, all clients in a home network will receive internet and video data through the wireless network. The RDK broadband device will be the access point and video devices such as Raspberry Pi will act as wifi clients.


RDK client devices will be able to access the QAM channel from channel and DVR from the Video gateway and internet through the broadband device. Video and internet data will be received by the Broadband Device and sent to Wireless clients.
