CableLabs subsidiary Kyrio has been tapped by the Open Connectivity Foundation to perform Internet of Things (IoT) device certification testing.
Cable operator Midco recently signed an agreement with Kyrio to leverage the company’s Wi-Fi roaming hub to expand the service reach for their customers.
Mitch Ashley, the president of CableLabs’ Kyrio, said the operation expects to launch Wi-Fi roaming services for as many as nine cable operators in the US.
CableLabs has rebranded its three-year-old for-profit, security-focused spin-off subsidiary, NetworkFX, into the more broadly skewing “Kyrio.”
CableLabs has rebranded NetworkFX, a spin-off initially focused on device security, to Kyrio as the unit continues to expand into new areas such as wireless roaming and WiFi testing.
