Xilinx has been an active member of the O-RAN alliance and a contributor to the 3GPP specifications for 5G mobile networks.

Under the Open RAN Policy Coalition, Xilinx will continue to collaborate with members and key stakeholders to ensure 5G and future networks will be openly developed, interoperable, and adaptable.

“The Open RAN 5G infrastructure rollout represents a significant opportunity as Xilinx is well positioned with the most comprehensive range of devices and platforms for 5G radio,  fronthaul and hardware acceleration solutions on the market today,” said Liam Madden, executive vice president and general manager of the Wired and Wireless Group at Xilinx.

“Altiostar is pleased to see Xilinx join the Open RAN Policy Coalition and continue collaborating together toward open 5G networks,” said Thierry Maupile, executive vice president, strategy and product management at Altiostar. “Xilinx’s adaptable technology is a great fit to accelerate availability and help drive broader adoption of Open RAN.”

“Xilinx is a leader in the wireless industry and its adaptable technology brings strong value with performance and cost benefits that align with the goals of the Open RAN Policy coalition to promote Open RAN and interoperable interfaces for 5G infrastructure,” said John Baker, Mavenir senior vice president.

Earlier this year Telefonica, one of the world’s largest mobile network providers, announced an Open RAN collaboration with Xilinx and additional ecosystem partners. Xilinx silicon supports multiple standards, bands, carriers and sub-networks that enable Telefonica to provide a unique and flexible platform for radio, fronthaul, and acceleration of 4G and 5G networks.

With its adaptive silicon platform that integrates numerous key wireless functions within a single Zynq  UltraScale+ RFSoC, Xilinx offers easy 5G integration for Open RAN systems while also delivering investment protection. The Xilinx Versal AI Core FPGA seriescan be used as an advanced radio beamforming platform for Open RAN massive MIMO platforms.
