DAC Warehouse

Manage and deploy your apps and services with ease

DAC Warehouse is the ultimate platform for broadband and pay TV operators looking to efficiently manage and deploy applications and services to their subscriber base.

It enables flexible and secure management of all application types, deployed across a range of CPE device profiles. Streamline operations and delight subscribers with ease.

Embrace the future of app deployment for RDK and Linux-based middlewares with DAC Warehouse.


Write once, deploy everywhere

Native applications (including RDK-V ‘premium’ apps) are costly to develop, maintain, certify and integrate with middleware platforms including RDK. Make native apps binary exchangeable for RDK6/7 operators, with app support across multiple device hardware profiles.

Consolidated app management

Manage and deliver all consumer-facing apps and headless apps/services (including partial firmware updates) in one place. Develop apps and services using your preferred approach/framework or take advantage of apps that have already been developed and are available to the market.

You’re in control

Providing a controlled app store experience has never been easier. DAC Warehouse empowers operators to create a fully integrated app store, tailored to their unique user experience while maintaining firm control over app distribution, user experience and subscriber data.


Forget about rigid firmware release cycles and monolithic deployments. With DAC Warehouse, enjoy new-found deployment flexibility. Experience application lifecycle management on a per-application, per-device profile basis, giving you unprecedented control over your app ecosystem.
