In the case of San Diego-based Solekai, the company has licensed the RDK software bundle to enable porting to set-top boxes, testing solutions and software integration activities supported by Solekai for its clients.

Solekai's licensing of the kit comes after the RDK was licensed by a handful of big-name vendors, including Pace, Motorola Mobility and Intel.

Comcast last month launched its Xfinity X1 service in its home market of Philadelphia after previously making it available in Boston, Atlanta and Chattanooga, Tenn. The company has been saying it will announce X1 rollouts in other markets before the end of this year.
