Meet Kyrio’s SDN NFV Expert Robin Ku

Robin Ku has 18 years of experience developing certification programs for CableLabs, and is now spearheading SDN/NFV innovation in the Kyrio NFV Interoperability Lab. When not in the lab, find him on a mountain bike or hiking trail somewhere in the Rockies. If you do, he’ll definitely invite you for a fine craft brew on the way home!

From PacketCable VoIP to Business Services to DPoE to DOCSIS® 3.1, Robin is a veteran of conformance testing and automation across a wide range of technologies.

In 2016, Kyrio initiated a new lab focused on interoperability testing of Software-Defined Networks and Network Function Virtualization (SDN NFV). Robin directs that effort, and in partnership with the CableLabs’ Virtualization R&D team they are working to accelerate deployment and commercialization of virtualization technologies, applications and services.

The Kyrio NFV Interop Lab has a wide range of activities for both hardware and software solution providers; everything from the design and realization of forward-facing proof-of-concept systems, to interoperability validation of virtualized network functions against a reference cloud platform.
