SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- AirTies Wireless Networks, a leading international provider of premium in-home wireless systems, today announced it has licensed the RDK (Reference Design Kit) to support the RDK community’s newest initiatives for broadband devices (RDK-B).

"We’re excited to join the growing RDK community, especially as it turns its attention to new broadband equipment in the home," said Bulent Celebi, Executive Chairman and founder of AirTies. "We look forward to evaluating how RDK-B can fit into our future plans, and sharing our expertise in ultra-performance Wi-Fi solutions with RDK operators and partners."

"AirTies is well respected for providing next-gen in-home Wi-Fi systems to global operators, so we are very pleased to welcome them into the RDK community," said Steve Heeb, President and General Manager of RDK Management, LLC. "As interest in RDK-B grows, we’re confident that innovative companies, such as AirTies, can play an important role in delivering significant benefits to RDK-based operators."

The Reference Design Kit (RDK) is a pre-integrated software bundle that provides a common framework for powering customer-premises equipment (CPE) from network operators. It enables network operators to standardize certain elements of these devices, but also to easily customize the applications and user experiences that ride on top. The RDK is supported by more than 250 companies including CE manufacturers, SOCs vendors, software developers, system integrators, and network operators. It is administered by the RDK Management LLC, a joint venture between Comcast Cable, Time Warner Cable, and Liberty Global. Beyond video-centric set-top boxes (RDK-V), the RDK community is now focused on providing similar software commonality and standardization across data gateways, a software initiative called RDK-B (broadband).

AirTies provides ultra-performance in-home Wi-Fi systems to leading service providers, such as Sky (UK, including SKY Q; Germany; Austria; and Italy), Vodafone, Singtel, Swisscom, and many others. AirTies noted that many other service providers are investing heavily to bring faster Internet speeds to the home, but legacy Wi-Fi equipment generally prevents subscribers from receiving those speeds consistently throughout the home itself.
