Leading SD-WAN Player Versa Networks Certifies Silicom’s Virtual CPE Appliances For ITS NFV-Based Solutions

– Several Major Telcos Designs in the Pipeline –

KFAR SAVA, Israel— September 20, 2016, – Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ: SILC) today announced that its Virtual Network Edge/CPE appliances have been certified by Versa Networks as a branch hardware platform offering for managed software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) projects which Versa is now pursuing with several large service providers.

The certification is for appliances that run Versa SD-WAN and SD-Security software in enterprise branch offices, and operated by Versa’s service provider customers as part of a managed network and security service for their end customers. The combination of Versa software and Silicom’s hardware design provides a unique price performance balance which is desired by many telcos and service providers. Versa has already introduced Silicom to several potential telcos and service providers and Silicom is now a part of Versa’s offering to such important customers.

“The software-defined WAN market is starting to get very hot, and service providers and enterprises alike are deploying the technology faster than ever,” commented Shaike Orbach, Silicom’s President & CEO. “In parallel, providers have seen the value of NFV in allowing the pairing of high value software with powerful yet open hardware devices. This is manifested perfectly in the solution of Versa SD-WAN/SD-Security software and Silicom’s virtualized branch appliances, which Versa and Silicom are proposing to major carriers around the world.”
