Tomorrow starts here
We innovate technology to transform industries.
We build platforms–technologies and specifications–-that help support a wide variety of services and applications, enabling one cohesive and seamless ecosystem that continually fuels the imaginations of millions.
Innovation and R&D Lab
As the leading innovation and R&D lab for the cable industry, we create global impact through our member companies around the world, our UpRamp startup platform, and our market solutions provider, Kyrio. With a state-of-the-art research and innovation facility and collaborative ecosystem with thousands of vendors, we deliver impactful network technologies for the entire industry.
We Enable the Deployment of our Technology Through Kyrio
The industry trusts Kyrio to support operators in their mission to build stronger networks, create communities to achieve shared objectives, enable device manufacturers to develop best-of-breed devices resulting in exceptional user experiences, provide industry-authorized testing and validation services and develop and deliver innovative and meaningful software solutions.
UpRamp Cultivates Fresh Ideas
UpRamp is a platform to connect startups, startup technology and founders to the global connectivity industry. By pulling innovation created from outside the industry and building the relationship between our members and the global startup ecosystem, UpRamp helps bring new technologies to market.
By keeping our technology royalty-free (or very low fee) and our software open source, we make it equally accessible to everyone. Because companies and developers are free to build on each other’s technology, without the fear of having to pay royalties, doors are opened for new improvements and innovations that may have not been possible.
Many of the breakthroughs that come out of CableLabs have the potential to become products or lines of business in their own right. Kyrio is able to extend the R&D and innovation work that CableLabs performs by providing independent products and services inside and outside of the cable industry.
CableLabs works with the suppliers to the cable industry to develop interoperable technologies that they can sell into the entire industry. Kyrio is able to work with vendors by providing customized services to help solve their unique challenges and reach their business goals.
By working with CableLabs members to develop technologies and specifications that benefit the whole industry, we’re able to analyze and solve problems quickly and cost-effectively, bringing more new technologies to market in a fraction of the time.
Kyrio is able to amplify CableLabs work to other industries, including energy, medical, and industrial and commercial IoT. Kyrio works with several trade associations, including the Center for Medical Interoperability, OpenADR Alliance, the Open Connectivity Foundation and the Wireless Broadband Alliance.
UpRamp has built an ecosystem designed to connect startups and entrepreneurs with the connectivity industry through a variety of programs for every stage of the entrepreneurial life cycle. UpRamp can help them identify, test, develop and commercialize new technologies that can benefit the entire cable industry and beyond.
We look to our members to identify issues in the cable industry. As field experts, they’re in the best position to know which problems need to be solved now and which ones to watch out for in the future. This is often the first step in our innovation process.
By partnering with our vendor community, we are able to bring industry awareness to their research, reduce their R&D risk and bring products to market quickly and cost effectively.
New ideas and partnerships are how we cultivate innovation. By joining forces with another company to pursue an idea, we can share unique skillsets, lower costs and mitigate risk, thus amplifying our chances of achieving groundbreaking results.
We connect professors, students, and technical leaders with the most interesting problems in the cable industry, providing resources, expertise, data, laboratory, and real-life environments for discovering and testing bright new ideas.
