"The quality of the entries across all the categories was extremely high, resulting in a very compelling group of finalists," said Light Reading Editor-in-Chief Ray Le Maistre. "They also reflect the ongoing innovation we're all witnessing in the communications services and technology sectors."

The Leading Lights awards are the telecom industry's most prestigious awards program and focus on next-generation communications technologies, applications, services, and strategies. This award is further validation of the transformation Xilinx has made from a supplier of programmable logic to a strategic partner for 'All Programmable' devices and design solutions enabling smarter, connected and differentiated next generation systems and networks. The impact of this all-programmable portfolio on next-generation systems is most visible in network communications, including emerging SDN and NFV based networks, data center compute acceleration, storage and networking, Nx100G and >400G OTN, 4G and pre-5G wireless radios and backhaul. With this transition, Xilinx is delivering a complete, All Programmable portfolio for service provider, enterprise, and data center markets.

"Xilinx's innovation is being leveraged in a very wide range of next generation systems and networks. Recently, we enabled the industry's only single-chip solution for 500G OTN transponders and announced collaboration with Huawei and Spirent on a 400GE core router. JDSU and IXIA have also announced their 400GE test systems based on Xilinx technology. Xilinx is enabling the majority of the 400GE line cards today, and is enabling the next generation SDN/NFV, OTN, and data center applications for the future," said Dan Mansur, Senior Director of Wired Communications at Xilinx.
