Silicom Achieves Tier-1 Design Win For State-Of-Art New Time-Stamping/Packet Processing Cards

– With Over $300K Initial POs In Hand, Management Projects Design Win to Ramp Up to $1M/Year Over the Next 12 Months –

KFAR SAVA, Israel— October 18, 2016 , – Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ: SILC) today announced that it has achieved an important Design Win with a Tier-1 Monitoring company for its groundbreaking Time Stamping and Packet Processing cards. The customer will use the cards initially to boost performance in the network monitoring infrastructure that it is deploying for one of the world’s most prestigious communications service providers (CSPs), an application that is projected to ramp up to approximately $1 million per year during the next 12 months. In addition, since this customer will now begin standardizing on Silicom next-generation cards for a variety of its systems and solutions, Management believes that this Design Win and relationship will generate additional wins and revenues over time.

Silicom’s Time Stamping and Packet Processing cards are high-performance FPGA-based interface cards that employ state-of-the-art Xilinx Ultrascale technology with QSFP28 cages, designed to enable a single card to deliver data at a variety of network speeds (ranging from 10G to 100G). Silicom’s highly advanced data capturing and packet processing IP, combined with a novel implementation of the Ultrascale technology, enables the cards to perform flawlessly in critical CSP and data center applications where zero-loss packet capturing is required, such as cyber security, lawful interception, service assurance, DPI and others.

“We are proud that this top-tier monitoring company has selected our cards as a key element of a sensitive application that it sells to world-leading CSPs, a clear confirmation of our leadership in the 100G network monitoring space,” commented Shaike Orbach, Silicom’s President and CEO. “With the many additional use-cases that our cards make possible, coupled with the close relationship that our customer has throughout the communications industry, we believe that additional important Design Wins and revenues are on the horizon, and that this customer will grow into a multi-million-dollar account for us.”
