NDA Vendor Forum Takeaways: Working with Kyrio
Guest blog post by Mitchell Ashley, President and General Manager of Kyrio. Last week I had the privilege of unveiling the new Kyrio at the NDA Vendor Forum. The NDA Vendor Forum is an annual event for us to brief the supplier community on all the activities at CableLabs, Kyrio and UpRamp. It’s a great opportunity to get up to speed on where the industry is headed and its priorities. As the leading innovation resource for everything networkable we provide technology solutions and enable new marketplaces for safer, better and faster ways to network. So businesses and their customers can thrive.
NetworkFX is now Kyrio
Today we are announcing the re-branding of NetworkFX to our new name, Kyrio. The driving strategy of Kyrio is to expand the impact of technologies created at CableLabs, beyond the well proven technology transfer model that's made CableLabs a successful global cable industry R&D organization.
Kyrio (then NetworkFX) was founded in 2012 to bring our managed Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) security services to industry associations, device manufactures and businesses beyond the traditional cable market. The same managed PKI service securing cable devices and broadband networks for the past 15 years now secures the Wi-Fi Alliance and OpenADR smart grid ecosystems and large enterprises.
So why Kyrio? The origin of Kyrio comes from the Greek word kyrios meaning "lord" or "master", representing the deep technology heritage and skills of the the people at Kyrio and our collective industries. Our name also embodies the curiousness that drives us to bring new technologies and services to market.
Since 2012, Kyrio has expanded into additional service offerings. In addition to managed PKI security services, Kyrio provides the Go2Broadband service, wi-fi testing services, and piloting a wi-fi roaming hub service with wi-fi network providers.
Visit our newly launched website and blog post to learn more about us. And thank you for welcoming us as we reintroduce ourselves as Kyrio.
