Xilinx joins the Open RAN Policy Coalition

Xilinx has announced it has joined the Open RAN Policy Coalition to support the development and deployment of Open RAN 5G technologies.

The Open RAN Policy Coalition membership promotes Open RAN as the solution for greater interoperability and security among a multi-vendor ecosystem.

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, Wired and Wireless Group, Xilinx.

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 for Open RAN that enable Telefonica to provide a flexible platform for radio, fronthaul, and acceleration of 4G & 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 solutions while also delivering investment protection.

The company's Versal AI Core series is a unique advanced radio beamforming platform solution intended for Open RAN massive MIMO platforms.
